A fourth sighting of the Loch Ness Monster has been “officially” registered this year by the Official Loch Ness Monsters Sightings Register.
The witness, 56-year-old Eoin O’Faodhagain of Donegal, Republic of Ireland, claims to have spotted Nessie “rising up and down” near Urquhart Castle in the Highlands.
O’Faodhagain says he saw two black shapes “rising up and down” about 10 feet apart splashing in Loch Ness.
This is the twelfth time since 2017 that O’Faodhagain has spotted the mythical creature in the freshwater loch and had it recorded by the Official Loch Ness Monsters Sightings Register.
“On my very first visit I had a sighting of a large mottled brown hump near Invermoriston in July 1987,” he told DailyMail.com.
“That sighting only intrigued me further into the Loch Ness Monster. I have now captured 12 sightings to date in the last four years.”
“While watching the webcam in the late afternoon, my attention was attracted to a disturbance in the water in the middle of the lake,” O’Faodhagain told Mirror.co.uk.
“A black shape broke the surface with a wake. It was moving slowly but was causing a lot of water agitation around it. Two black hump-like shapes seemed to be popping up and down as it cut through the surface of the Loch.
“The object is viewed for 1 minute 41 seconds, after this it just disappeared,” he continued. “There was no boat activity on the lake at the time of the sighting.”
This now makes four official sightings of the Loch Ness Monster in 2021. In 2020, there were only 13 confirmed sightings all year.
