Loch Ness Monster film
Richard Collis spotted something unusual as he drove alongside the loch last week.
He pulled his car over and using his mobile phone managed to take some video footage and photographs of the sight.
“I was travelling along the side of loch Ness, saw something out the corner of my eye, pulled over and went down to the Loch and took some photographs, ” said Richard, 58, who runs a tree planting company on the west shore of the loch.
“As I was watching, I was thinking what the hell is that!
“The loch was quite rough and I wanted to get as best a picture that I could possibly get because I knew it wasn’t going to last forever.
“It was about roughly 150-200 metres out in the water on a stretch about a mile from Fort Augustus heading towards Invermoriston.
“It’s quite difficult to know how long it lasted but it felt like a couple of minutes.”
His photographs look very similar to the famous Surgeons photograph of the legendary creature taken by hoaxer Christian Spurling in 1993.
Richard, 58, who was born and bred in the Highland village of Drumnadrochit immediately called his Danish-born wife Vibeke after the incident.
“She thought I was having a joke and I said ‘No no, I’ve got mobile phone footage of it’ then when she saw it she said that’s strange.
“It’s similar to the Surgeons photo, that’s what I thought was weird. To me it looks like a long neck and a small head. Like a serpent - the old highland name of it was sea serpent or water horse.
“What do I make of it? I just think it’s an anomaly that I can’t really explain. I’m a bit of a doubter of a lot of things until I see it myself and I wouldn’t have believed what I saw if someone else was telling me.
“I’ve fished the loch man and boy and I haven’t ever seen anything like that. As I say I don’t really believe in anything like that until I see it but what I saw was obviously what the Loch Ness Monster is - I’m not saying it was a fire breathing dragon and I never saw teeth or anything like that, but I must have thought there was something there if I stopped to take pictures.
“It’s like seeing a UFO or something like that. I’ve seen what potentially could be the Loch Ness Monster. I’m excited about seeing it and I’d like to see it again.”
Richard’s wife Vibeke, 60, added: “I’ve been here 37 years and my husband has been here his whole life, so we are completely aware of how unique this is.
“I couldn’t believe it and laughed when he showed me because I knew he could never set that up. He’s not very technical or not very computer wise either.
