Nessie sightings

We are not the experts when it comes to official Nessie sightings! We understand that along side the amazing scenery and landscapes you will see a lot of strange movements on the loch with weather, wildlife and the odd paddleboarder (these can make a great Nessie shadow in the right light!) We have been asked by our friends who own the official Loch Ness Monster sighting register that you remember the cameras will not always give a clear resolution. We want you to spot the mystical legend that is our beloved Nessie but when making an official sighting report you must have footage of clear facial features of an unknown creature in the footage for it to be considered. To report anything you do see of this kind, email :

Come and find Nessie yourself
