According to the latest report, a mother and daughter had been visiting the loch when they spotted something in the water.
From a mysterious wake in the water to an unexplained mass picked up on sonar, this year's Loch Ness Monster sightings might not have proven the creature's existence, but they've certainly served to maintain interest in the legend over the last twelve months.

This latest sighting, which occurred on October 11th, was reported to the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register by a mother and daughter who had been visiting from the east of Scotland.

In the report, they described witnessing something unusual in the water:

"200 yards off the bank we noticed a long break in the water which was otherwise still and calm. As we watched a black lump appeared out of the water and sat for approximately 30 seconds before disappearing once again under the water."
"After another 30 seconds the black lump resurfaced for a shorter amount of time before disappearing under the water again. The lump appeared to be boxy in shape and about the size of a football. It did not appear to swim about, rather it just bobbed and then disappeared under the water before resurfacing to do the same a second time."

An (albeit difficult to make out) photograph of the object was also submitted (see above).

Whether or not what they saw was evidence of a large creature in the loch remains open for debate - it's also possible that they observed a seal or some other conventional form of wildlife in the water.

Either way, their story makes for an interesting read.

It could be a bubble of the methane gas on the water surface.

If the sightings are like this--I am surprised there are not more than 100 sightings per day!  Never mind just 6 in 2022.

I mean, if I'm going by their deion, I found the LNM in an unflushed toilet at the grocery store

Don't no one recognize a Bigfoot, skinny-dipping, when they see one?
