The Loch Ness Monster has been caught on camera for the fourth time this year, a “Nessie spotter” has bizarrely claimed.
Distant webcam footage set up at the famous lake in Scotland provides a constant live feed that can be watched from anywhere online.
Monster enthusiast Eoin O’Faodhagain, from Co Donegal in Ireland, believes a moving object in the water last month is yet further proof of the mythical beast’s existence.
He claims that at around 10.51 am on August 22 he recorded Nessie after noticing “two solid back shapes emerging from the water”.
He told Edinburgh Live: “While watching the live feed on the webcam at Loch Ness on August 22, 2021, at 10.51 in the morning, I noticed a disturbance in the water on the right side of the screen, and two solid back shapes emerging from the water moving to the left of the screen.
“They were at least two feet high out of the water, and four feet wide, and at least six feet long…the sighting lasted less than two minutes when they completely disappeared.
“I kept recording for a further 30 seconds to show that they were not surface vessels and that the black-shaped images were gone.”
He continued: “There is a stationary cruiser on the left-hand side of the screen.”
It’s not Eoin’s first time spotting, as he now has four webcam sightings registered by The Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register which is run by Inverness-based chartered accountant Gary Campbell.
The register is the only website which records every time the creature is spotted, and they have recorded 1135 sightings to date, including eight webcam observations.
Eoin believes that the mythical monster is “most definitely” real and even claims to have seen Nessie in the flesh.

He added: “I have been to Loch Ness four times hoping to see Nessie, and in July 1987, I saw a mottled brown hump about four feet out of the water in Invermoriston Bay.
“This account was never reported as there was no one around at that time to report it to.
“My webcam footage from 2018, was put up on YouTube and still attracts a lot of attention and stands at 502,000 views.
“I believe Nessie may be an unknown species.”
