The above footage was spotted by Michael Yuen watching the Loch Ness live stream all the way from Hong Kong. The Daily Record reports that after releasing the video Michael said that he watches the live streams as a form of relaxation from all the craziness that’s happening in China right now.
Our hearts go out to Michael in what must be an incredibly frantic time and we certainly applaud his choice of relaxation techniques because this is some pretty good footage.
It’s not a terribly complicated Loch Ness Monster video but that’s okay. As they say, sometimes less is more.
What we see here is a rather large object rising out of the water from the left and swimming across the waterfront to the right. When we look a little closer we can also note that it’s leaving a fair amount of wake in its path. A solid object passively riding the current wouldn’t leave this distinct a wake so it’s safe to assume that this has some sort of force giving it forward momentum.
Unfortunately the video quality isn’t great which limits our ability to dig much deeper. It’s certainly possible that this could be a boat of some sort, although the speed and direction doesn’t seem to support that theory. Given that this is directly in the path of a well known Loch Ness Monster streaming cam you can’t take away the human element – someone pushing along a monster-like object for internet giggles.
Still, I prefer to look at this as a positive sighting and so does Gary Campbell who runs the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings page. Gary has officially designated Michael’s sighting as the 14th Loch Ness Monster sighting of the year and also commented that this is the first sighting from Hong Kong he knows of.
