Loch Ness Monster Tales, Folklore and Pics from Scottland

Updated on August 30, 2017

Tales and Folklore of Scottland

Ever wondered about the stories you've heard growing up about the Loch Ness Monster? Or maybe you thought a friend was crazy for thinking that it may be real? Sailors use to tell stories about seeing Nessy out in the dark waters and how big and frightening it truly was. Why would these people have lied about these huge creatures? What was in it for them to tell these tales? Who was the first to talk about the creature and in what Era or time did they start to speak of this creature? Did you ever stop and think about what hidden treasures the deep waters held in secret from us? Maybe it's time you found out from reading a little on the interesting background and present information of this supposed folklore and make the choice yourself of how it all came about and why the stories still continue.

The day after Mr Cockrell's sighting the monster was seen by a Mr Brown and his wife from Invergordon in the same place but closer to shore. They described it as three thick black humps moving through the water with 50 ft ahead of the humps a movement which seemed to suggest a head.

24th May,1960

A member of the Northern Naturalists Organisations, Mr Peter O'Connor from Gates head, Durham had a sighting. From the garden of the Foyers Hotel he and a number of other people saw the creature at around 4 o'clock in the afternoon. At first he thought it was a rowing boat about 200 yards from the Foyers shore but using his field glasses he could see a brown colored object which was slowly sinking.

Mr O'Connor encountered the monster yet again 3 days later. Between 6 and 6:30 a.m. he went for a walk along the shore beside Foyers Bay and the monster glided into view around the headland. He waded into the water up to his waist to get a closer view. It features were small and sheep-like and a very, very strong neck. It's skin appeared smooth, very like a seal. He turned to yell to his companion and then turned back and took this photograph, to the right, as it disappeared into the turbulence it had created.
