Nessie by Ian Bremner

Most Convincing Photo of the Loch Ness Monster Yet?

I have said in the past, numerous times, that I don’t believe in the Loch Ness Monster. At least, I don’t believe that the things people are seeing that make up the legend of Nessie are necessarily caused by a prehistoric plesiosaur that has survived into modern times. But people are seeing something, so obviously […]

Loch Ness Monster Hunter Admits to Hoaxing Photo

Back in August, I did a story about a tour guide for a Loch Ness Monster cruise who captured a picture of the alleged beast. At the time, I voiced my suspicions about this very serendipitous find. Now it turns out that the photographer is admitting that it was all a hoax. Surprise, surprise. The […]

New Photograph of the Loch Ness Monster May Just Be a Rogue Wave

It seems like cryptozoology is plagued by bad photographs, and even the term “Blobsquatch” was coined to describe those oh-so-fuzzy photos of an amorphous something in the woods that might be Bigfoot, or might just be a tree stump. And while there have actually been some interesting photos and video of Sasquatch, I really don’t […]

Creationist Textbook Removes Loch Ness Monster Reference

I was reading the following story and trying to make sense of it, when my brain started to hurt. That’s when I realized that I was trying to use logic when dealing with Creationists. If you’re not aware, Creationists believe the Earth was created in 6 days (the seventh day was a day off for […]

Charlie Sheen Plans to Hunt the Loch Ness Monster

Forget Celebrity Ghost Stories. They need a show about crazy celebrities who are into other paranormal phenomena. Like Meatloaf and Robbie Williams going hunting for UFOs, Charlie Sheen is now jumping on the bandwagon: he plans to head to Scotland to hunt for the Loch Ness monster. HOLLYWOOD hellraiser Charlie Sheen is planning a trip […]

Loch Ness Monster Sightings Blamed on Earthquakes

I’ve heard a lot of plausible explanations over the years for the sightings of the Loch Ness monster (or other lake monsters), but an Italian scientist is now claiming that earthquakes might be the culprit. I’m not a big believer in lake monsters, but even I tend to think that there’s something more going on […]

Mysterious Sea Creature Washes Ashore in Scotland

So far, this week has been ripe with stories of incredulous speculations about normal, everyday things. From a man calling 911 over Bigfoot “proof” to ufologists claiming to have seen a rat on Mars, a lot of conclusions have been jumped to. Improper grammar aside, here is the latest story of people thinking that a […]

The Sledging Ghost

One of my favourite ghost stories relates to an enterprising Scot who immigrated across the pond to the US, finally ending up in Canada. Simon McTavish was a Highlander born around 1750. When he first arrived in the Americas, he spent several years living in New England, before ending his days in Montreal, Canada. In […]

More Glasgow Hauntings

Unfortunately in my last article, detailing some of the best ghostly tales associated with my hometown of Glasgow in Scotland, quite a few stories were left out. As they are too good to pass up on, I’m continuing my haunted round up this month. Southern Necropolis, The Gorbals The Southern Necropolis is a sizeable cemetery […]

Loch Ness Monster Expert to Discuss Findings

I’m usually pretty bored by lake monsters as a cryptid, as I just don’t see much evidence to support their existence, and most photos of the alleged monster either look like obvious fakes or waves in the water. But I do think a statistical analysis of Loch Ness Monster sightings would be interesting, and similar […]
