A gentleman by the name of Richard Mavor was on a charity canoe trip in Scotland this year and filming his adventures. Later, while viewers were watching the footage he shot for his channel Richard Outdoors (Richard has removed the video), they noticed a “Nessie” shaped object hanging around the edge of the water. Richard shot this footage with a 4k drone, so it’s fairly high resolution for a Loch Ness Monster sighting. The footage definitely shows an object that looks something like a pleiosaur. It’s also notable that Richard Mavor is a self-described skeptic and told the New York Post, “The last thing I want to do is make a Nessie claim.” The fact that this is an object located under the water which resembles a plesiosaur is undeniable. Richard Mavor seems critical of his own find and baffled as to what it could be. With that said, we don’t have any further evidence than the photos and video. The link above will take you to Richard’s youtube channel shortly before the time of the sighting in the video, and the image on this post, we enhanced, is from that footage.
Update:10/4 Richard removed his original youtube video after being accused of a hoax by a number of internet users.
Analysis: As we mentioned in the original post. The object was not moving within the water. Mavor made no claim as to the fact that it was Nessie, just a Nessie shaped object on his video. All we saw on the video was a stagnate Nessie shaped object, so if you’re tracking these sightings. This would count in that category of being one instance of a Nessie shaped object seen underwater – on video – Mavor and no one else in his party made the claim of seeing the object at the time the video was taken. The object could have very well been a child’s toy. The object may have fooled Mavor too.
For historical purposes, the whole thing blew up on Twitter when a user named Sam Shearon on Twitter claimed the object in the video was identical to a Nessie toy.
