Chie Kelly’s new Loch Ness Monster pictures

Tuesday 5th December 2023

Earlier this year (2023), in August, Chie Kelly went public with photographs of the loch ness monster which she had taken five years prior whislt she was on holiday in the area. The pictures were taken near the village of Dores, along the east shore of the loch, and can be seen below.

Kelly explained that the photographs had been kept private due to fears of ridicule, until earlier this year when they was published in several United Kingdom papers. Kelly gave the following statement about the monster:

“What I saw looked like a serpent. It was definitely a creature and it was moving. At the time I did not want to face public ridicule by making the photographs public.”

“I was just taking pictures with my Canon camera of Scott and our daughter Alisa, who was then five, when about 200 metres from the shore, moving right to left at a steady speed, was this creature.”

“It was spinning and rolling at times. We never saw a head or neck. After a couple of minutes it just disappeared and we never saw it again.”

“It was making this strange movement on the surface. We did not hear any sound. There were these strange shapes below the surface. I could not make out any colours — the water was dark.

“I could not accurately assess its length but the two parts that were visible were less than two metres long together.”


The Loch Ness Mystery Blog did a deep dive into the photos here.
