Tourists visiting Loch Ness have recorded new footage that they assert depicts the aftermath of the lake’s famous monster, after the beast rose from the depths while they watched.
Reyshell Avellanoza and her daughter were visiting Scotland last week from the Philippines, touring Loch Ness while they were in the country, according to the Aberdeen Press and Journal. While on the shores of the loch, they claim to have observed a large object rising from the waves, which they are convinced was the Loch Ness Monster. Unfortunately, they were so transfixed by what they were observing that they neglected to photograph it in time, instead capturing the monster’s wake after it dove once again.
Reyshell, 29, traveled to Scotland with her five-year-old daughter, Heather Elizabeth, to visit her stepfather, Campbell Ross, and her mother, Consuela. The family ventured out last Tuesday to visit Urquhart Castle, a spot long associated with sightings of the monster, as the Inquisitr has previously reported. As Campbell waited in the car park, the group walked around the ruins to approach the shoreline.
“Reyshell had her tablet and we were taking pictures when Heather pointed out something in the water,” Consuela recalled. “She said it looked like a big black belly. We looked and could see this big disturbance quite a way out and this big black object in the middle of it.”

The group were so captivated by the sight, they didn’t immediately take a picture of the monster, raising their cameras only as it sank out of sight and began retreating.
“I took still photographs and Reyshell used her zoom as well to try and get a closer look, but it wasn’t as good as what we saw with our eyes,” Consuela added. “One of my pictures shows a dark object behind the circle of water and that was it moving away. We were all quite excited by it. I have always been a believer in the monster and for my family to see it was amazing. If we had been a little quicker with our cameras, we would have better images.”

Campbell noted that he regrets not walking down to the shore, as he is a believer in the Loch Ness Monster, according to the Daily Mirror. Recalling a moment 30-years-ago when he saw a similar disturbance in the loch, he pointed out that the wake was “very unusual and caused by some animate object.”
Still, until someone manages to capture better visual proof of its existence, Campbell concedes that the Loch Ness Monster will remain a mystery.
