Two more Nessie sightings have been added to the official register.

A photo taken by Siobhan Janaway, who lives locally according to the register, was taken at 11.26am on August 27.

It has been lodged as 2023's seventh sighting.

Siobhan said: "There was something causing turmoil in the water off Foyers point then it coalesced into a single object moving at speed just under the surface causing at least a 20m white wake."

She told the register that there were no boats near the location at that time.

The eighth sighting is from tourist Fiona Wade on August 31.

She reported seeing something similar to that which was reported by Alastair Gray – "three odd and seemingly connected shapes" on August 26 that were recorded as the sixth sighting of 2023.

Fiona said: "It was almost identical to that seen on Saturday [August 26] and probably in a very similar location, I might add that I was not aware of this sighting on Saturday until returning home this evening.

"It initially looked like a periscope but then two curved areas followed, it was moving and about half way out in the loch looking roughly over to mid way between Foyers and Whitebridge. I have seen deer crossing before but this was like nothing I have seen before and I can only describe it as Nessie as I can't think of any logical thing it could have been.

"It was large enough to catch my eye and it appeared to leave a slight wake behind it."

The sighting took place at 10.45am, the register was told the water was "flat calm" and there were no boats nearby. It lasted about 30-40 seconds.
