 Have a look at the latest sightings from 2016 here


News - we're twenty years old this month! We've been collecting Nessie sightings as they are reported since 1996 - thank you for your support.


The count includes all those reported and recorded since 565AD - the very first sighting report can be seen here. The register is split into three sections:

"While there are many people who do not believe that the Loch Ness Monster exists, there is practically no one who would not be overjoyed to find out that it did"

Daniel Cohen, A Modern Look at Monsters, 1970

However, it's not just Nessie that fascinates people - did you know that in Scotland alone, there are 23 other lochs (in addition to Loch Ness) where sightings of unknown creatures have been noted - we've also decided to record those where we can.

So, if you see something in Loch Ness or elsewhere, let us know and we'll add it to the list. Pictures are especially welcome as they help prove what you saw.

As you'll also appreciate, there are also many historical sightings - we're adding them to the register as we find them so if you know of any old unreported sightings, please tell us so that we can update the lists.
