Scotland’s second most famous Loch monster – Morag of Loch Morar – has made a comeback.
Holidaymaker Doug Christie, a recently retired oil industry engineer not given to flights of fancy, said he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw a solid 20ft black shape in the water.
He and wife Charlotte say they saw the beast three times during a stay at Kisimuil B&B by the loch. Doug, 66, from Brechin, Angus, said: “I could not believe my eyes.
They saw it three times, once for over 10 minutes, it didn’t move much, and all they got was this one picture? Really? Where’s the rest? This picture is less than impressive and could be a number of different animals besides jumping to the monster conclusion.
Very disappointing and reeks of hyperbole and a tourism agenda. I don’t doubt that the people saw something but to say it’s a monster is completely unwarranted. It’s likely a big fish or several other possibilities. We have zero good evidence for a unknown monster living in this lake or any other. What’s truly unknown is what out of the many reasonable possibilities this could be.
