Mysterious black lump on Loch Ness has been recorded with people claiming it's Nessie

Mysterious black lump on Loch Ness has been recorded with people claiming it's Nessie

The Loch Ness monster has plagued us for years with mysterious reported sightings and its eerie shadows in the water. 

But a further mysterious black lump spotted at the Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands has recently been recorded, and of course, people are claiming it’s Nessie.

A Scottish mother and daughter shared a photo of the ominous object in the water, which they said appeared to come towards them as they walked on the bank of the freshwater loch.

While it could seem a little far-fetched, what they claimed to witness has actually been recorded as the sixth official sighting of the Loch Ness monster in 2022.

The moment, which was said to have taken place on 11 October, was recorded by the mum and daughter who were in the East of Scotland at around 5.24pm, the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register reports.

Yep, I’m just as surprised as you that an official site for this myth exists.

The post explained how the duo claimed to see an area in the water which was ‘still and calm’ just 200 yards from the bank where they stood.

They wrote in the post: "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."

They also claimed that the shape they saw in the water was a ‘boxy’ one and resembled the rough size of a football, which didn’t appear to be swimming in the loch. 

However, they described how the lump instead seemed to bob up and down out of the water multiple times.

Last year, Loch Ness Monster experts (yep, those are a thing too) branded the previous 'sighting' of the figure a 'hoax'.

Richard Mavor, who runs the adventure-based YouTube channel Richard Outdoors, claimed to have captured a mysterious figure lurking in the waters by the banks of the loch during a recent trip.

However, just a couple of days since it hit the headlines, internet sleuths and Nessiephiles have branded it as yet another 'fake'.

Speaking to LADbible, Steve Feltham said he was sent the footage over the weekend and within hours a team of experts had pulled the footage apart, with YouTube channel ParaBreakdown claiming that 'Nessie' was actually a toy plesiosaurus.
