Why the Nessies of Scotland are Supernatural Beasts

I’m often asked why I’m so sure that the Nessies of Loch Ness, Scotland are supernatural in nature. Well, I’ll tell you: even some of the most famous and credible cases are surrounded by paranormal overtones. I’ll share with you a perfect example. It goes like this: Around 10:00 p.m. on May 26, 2007 a man named Gordon Holmes filmed, well, something, in Loch Ness. It was something that turned him into an overnight media sensation – albeit a brief sensation. The day in question was dominated by heavy rain, but which cleared as the evening arrived, allowing Holmes to get clear footage of what looked like some kind of large animal moving at a significant rate of knots in the waters of Loch Ness. The specific location from where all the action was captured was a parking area, on the A82 road, just a couple of miles from Drumnadrochit.  Not only that, Holmes estimated, as he excitedly watched and filmed, that the creature was around fourteen meters in length – which, if true, effectively ruled out everything known to live in the inland waters of the U.K.

Holmes, a lab technician, caught the attention of not just the British media, but also the likes of NBC News and CNN. He, and his near-priceless film, were quickly big news. Holmes said, when the media descended upon him in absolute droves, that he could scarcely believe what he was seeing. It was a large, black-colored animal that had a length of around forty-five feet. His first thought was: giant eel. Holmes told the media of the eel theory: “They have serpent-like features and they may explain all the sightings in Loch Ness over the years.”

Long-time Nessie seeker Adrian Shine was moved to comment in a fairly positive fashion. Although describing himself as a skeptic on matters concerning the monsters, Shine was certainly no debunker of this case. Indeed, he said of Gordon Holmes’ film that it was “some of the best footage I have seen.” Shine was careful to add that while Holmes might have filmed a living beast, there was always a possibility that the whole thing could be explained away by waves, or that it might well have been a case of seeing something we want to see and then interpreting it as a monster – whatever “it” really was. It wasn’t long before monster-hunters turned their attentions away from the Loch Ness Monster and in the direction of Holmes himself; something which provoked huge controversies when certain, eye-opening and eyebrows-raising issues came to light.

Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman discovered that Holmes had a biographical page at the Department of Archaeological Sciences at Bradford University, at which he was described as holding the position of Media and IT Technician. But there was more to come. In addition, Coleman demonstrated that Holmes had written a number of books, including The Complex Creation of All Universes; 2000 BC: A Neolithic Solstice Odyssey; and Merlin’s Meteorite. Rather intriguingly, Holmes himself said that his then most recent book, Trice Visualization, “…describes a sort of medical condition I have for visualizing a sort of frame from a dream whilst being conscious.” They were images that typically lasted for under a minute, and which occurred every two or three months. Did Holmes’ seemingly psychic skills give him the ability to see, and even film, one of the supernatural Nessies on that fateful night in May 2007? It’s a controversial theory we should not rule out. And the controversy didn’t end there. It had scarcely gotten started.

In 2001, much of the U.K.’s cattle herd was decimated by a devastating outbreak of foot and mouth disease. More than ten million animals were put to death. It was around about the time when the grim crisis came to an end – which was in September 2001 – that Holmes had an encounter with another unknown animal that has also been seen at Loch Ness. It was one of the mysterious Alien Big Cats, or ABCs, that Merrily Harpur believes to be body-morphing daimons. The location of Holmes’ encounter was the little hamlet of Newby Cote, near Clapham, Yorkshire Dales, England – where the ABC was stalking a group of frightened sheep. Holmes also claimed to have photographed fairies, at a place called Load Saddle Well, on the wilds of Ilkley Moor, England. It’s an area renowned for its many and varied encounters of the UFO kind, and near to what is called the Twelve Apostles. An ancient circle of standing stones, the Twelve Apostles were constructed during the Bronze Age. It was things like this that led Loren Coleman to say:  “Realistically, we must now admit, at the very least, Gordon T. Holmes is a bit eccentric.” Or maybe he isn’t.

Many within the monster-hunter community felt that Holmes’ claims to have seen both fairies and an alien big cat impacted deeply and negatively on his film-footage of an alleged Loch Ness Monster. I disagreed. I pointed out that it only impacts negatively if we rigidly holds to the theory that the Nessies are flesh and blood animals. If, as I have suggested time and again, the creatures are not what they appear to be, then Holmes’ claims may not be so outlandish, after all. They just might be right on the money. Let’s look at the facts: Holmes undeniably filmed something of paramount importance, something which caught the attention of the world’s mainstream media. This was not faked footage. Even Adrian Shine was not unimpressed by it. In that sense, the film has significant credentials.

Let’s not forget, too, that Holmes claimed the psychic ability to visualize “a sort of frame” from a dream “whilst being conscious.” In other words, Holmes may have been able to impact on, and even affect, what we term reality. The nature of reality was something that Nessie-seeker Ted Holiday pondered on extensively in the 1970s, when confronted by the undeniably stranger aspects of the Nessie affair. And if Holmes’ abilities allowed him to see one supernatural monster, perhaps that is why he was also able to catch sight of yet another mysterious creature: one of those alien big cats.

So, what we have with Gordon Holmes is a man who filmed a large creature in Loch Ness, who possessed unusual, psychic abilities, and who – probably as a result of those same abilities – was able to tap into a strange, ethereal and usually unseen realm dominated by other monsters and fabulous, magical creatures, too. Gordon Holmes’ film, in relation to the Loch Ness Monster, was the undeniable highlight of the first decade of the 21st Century. That the footage, the man who shot the film, and just about every attendant aspect of the story, were steeped in matters of a supernatural nature, demonstrates something notable: that there is something incredibly weird about the Nessies. They’re not what they appear to be. Nor are they what many Nessie-seekers want them to be. Too bad. Embrace the supernatural side of the Nessie phenomenon or remain destined to never get the answers. The choice is yours.

What aliens are doing at Loch Ness

What connects aliens to the Scottish lake monster? And why did many eyewitnesses say that a mysterious force prevented them from taking photos or videos of this monster? There are no answers to these questions yet.

Loch Ness, located in Scotland, is primarily famous for its mysterious monster, nicknamed Nessie, which according to various theories is either a huge eel, or a seal, or a prehistoric dinosaur. In turn, some associate the appearance of Nessie with the activities of aliens, and not from scratch.

It is true that strange lights or disc-shaped UFOs are regularly seen over Loch Ness, but there is also an eyewitness story about how aliens landed on the shore of the lake. This happened on August 14, 1971, when the eyewitness Jan Ove Sudberg (now deceased) was 23 years old. Early in the morning, between about 8:30 and 9:30 am, he was on the shores of Loch Ness in the Foyers Bay area.

Suddenly he stumbled upon something amazing and it was not a monster. Sudberg saw a clearing ahead, on which stood an unusual large object, shaped like a huge cigar. It was about 10 meters long, and at the top there was something like a cockpit. Near the object were “pilots” – humanoid creatures.

There were three of them and they were dressed in tight suits, similar to diving. When they entered the object and the object then rose high into the air, then Sudberg realized that he was observing aliens. As the ship gained altitude, it began to slowly fly over the hills towards the nearby Loch More Lake.

The story doesn’t end there. Sudberg was not a Scotsman, he came to Loch Ness as a tourist and flew back to his native Sweden shortly after seeing the aliens. And there a new stage in this strange story began. In Sudberg’s house, unusual phenomena began to occur, a poltergeist, he began to receive mysterious phone calls, and later even Men in Black came to him.

Soon Sudberg contacted the British researcher of anomalous phenomena, Ted Holiday, and told him his story. He also complained to him that he could not photograph UFOs and aliens in the photo, although he had a camera with him. He felt as if some force paralyzed his will and did not allow him to do it.

It is curious that Holiday later repeatedly encountered a similar phenomenon from Nessie’s eyewitnesses. All of them, when they saw the monster in the lake, for some unknown reason, either could not photograph it, or tried, but they did not succeed.

He also found out that much earlier eyewitnesses of Nessie faced this phenomenon. On November 12, 1933, eyewitness Hugh Gray captured a photograph of Nessie, which is considered the first 100% authentic photograph of the Loch Ness Monster.

Gray’s photo shows something serpentine floating in the water. However, few people know that when Gray saw this creature in the lake, he took as many as five pictures before it went under water.

However, only one out of five photographs showed the monster, the rest of the negatives for some reason turned out to be empty.

The conclusion seems to be obvious: the monster in Loch Ness is more than just a large eel, it has some powers to protect it, and in some way it is connected with UFOs and aliens.

A Briton captured on camera a creature similar to the Loch Ness monster

A resident of British Southampton Steve Challis, during a vacation in Scotland last year, photographed a creature in a lake that looks similar to the famous Loch Ness monster, reports the Daily Record.

Photos were taken during a trip to an excursion to Arkart Castle on the shores of the famous lake. A man photographed the opposite shore when he noticed a ripple in the water. He took some pictures, and then the creature itself appeared out of the water for a moment. 

After that, it disappeared and did not appear again. As a result, the camera recorded the animal in only one frame, which Challis discovered a few months later, when he looked at the quarantine pictures taken during the trip because of the coronavirus.

After the Briton shared a strange picture on the Internet, users suggested that it was the famous Loch Ness monster. However, the photographer does not share this opinion. He does not believe in the monster and believes that the creature he shot was simply a big fish or seal.

Interest in the photograph was expressed by blogger and expert on Nessie Roland Watson, but he suggests that the picture taken by Challis was edited in Photoshop. Challis claims that the photograph is genuine. He drew attention to the fact that the shot he made was completely different from those snapshots of monsters that the network abounds in. At the same time, he is still convinced that he shot just a big fish.

The story of the Nessie creature from the Scottish Loch Ness attracts many tourists who want to see it with their own eyes. According to eyewitnesses, the mythical monster from the urban legend has a long neck and a huge torso. Nessie’s existence is not proven.

A video of the second “confirmed” appearance of Nessie appeared on the internet

A Nessie fan recorded a second meeting with her this year. O’Faodhagen, a 55-year-old employee of the Irish hospital, claimed to have seen Loch Ness floating in Urquhart Bay.

He managed to film this meeting. He is delighted with the video. O’Faodhagen sent his results to the Official Loch Ness Monster Observation Register, and they confirmed the footage as an official second observation in 2020.

The video shows a dark figure rising from the water.

She splashes, creating waves and a white foamy substance. Then it goes under water and reappears. Despite the fact that he saw about 1.2 m of the creature emerging from the water, O’Faudhagein estimated that it probably had a length of at least 3 m. The frames that show this creature last 1 minute 38 seconds. O’Faudhagain said that Nessie had not appeared for the past three months. He decided that Nessie went to quarantine.

Her appearance surprised him. He believes that Nessie has stepped out of the depths to say hello. O’Faodhagen noticed that during her appearance on the lake there is no activity. On January 18 of this year, he observed her appearance from the water. Gary Campbell, keeper of the Official Loch Ness Monster Observation Register, confirmed this observation.
According to O’Faodhagen, it is very exciting to get a new observation, especially when it happened almost immediately after the first. And he seems to know what he is looking for.

Last year, he managed to capture 4 encounters. 2019 was a record year for people who saw the Loch Ness Monster. A total of 18 observations were confirmed. This is the biggest since 1983.

Some believe in the existence of Nessie, others are critical. Perhaps it is not worth denying that a strange creature unknown to science lives in the dark waters of the lake. If you have not seen any phenomenon, this does not mean at all that it is not.
