Im very sceptical about this one. I've lived around the loch all my life so I have a bit of local knowledge about the environment and animals etc.
1 There is nothing in the video to suggest that they are really on loch ness, no man made landmarks and I do not recognise the mountains in the
background though that does not prove it is really fake.
2 The accent of the boat skipper sounds very suspect to me, it is definately not a local accent it sounds more sothern but even at that im still not
convinced it was really a proper accent, in my opinion the accent was put on for the cameras sake.
3 The boat skipper also said " there are no bears about here." Anybody that lives in Scotland knows there are no bears ANYWHERE in Scotland except
for the zoo's.
4 Im not sure about this one but I have never heard of loch ness having a water ballif??? Let alone one that has it in his power to confiscate
anything. I will speak to my friend that is in the coastgaurd about this ballif thing to see if I can find out more.
5 To me it is definately not a crab claw, and definately not a crab that you will find in waters around scotland. It does look like an immature antler
though and I am 99% positive this is what it is. What makes me come to this conclusion is that I have seen antlers and horns removed from animals
before(the advantage of spending a lot of time on my grandfathers farm) and the root looks identical to many I have seen as you can see the fibres
where it joins onto the head of the animal. As to what the antlers are off I am unsure, in my opinion it does not resemble the antlers of the red deer
which are plentifull around the area.
Well thats my tuppence worth for you to all ponder over, if I get the chance I might email these guys and see what sort of local information they know
about the area. We'll see if they can name the boat they were on or the hotel they were staying in and the name of the skipper of the boat, anything
at all that will convince me they really were in the area. If any info comes my way i will post it here A.S.A.P.
