i seriously doubt that a dinosaur is in loch ness. if dinosaurs who lived underwater survived, y didn't it evolve like the rest of the animals? a dinosaur that big wouldn't be able to surive in the loch for long since it requires a huge ecosystem. also, there would be more than 1 and probably more than 2 since it had to reproduce and according to the hardy-wienburg principles, a small population will evolve faster than a huge one.

actually a dino in loch ness is possible because in 1935 of the coast of south africa a fish called the coelacanth was caught in a fishing net thought to be extinct for millions of years and it existed before dinosaurs. since this happened 60 more have been caught
Glaciation The present day Loch Ness is about 10,000 years old and dates from the end of the last Ice Age (which lasted more than 20,000 years). During that age, the Great Glen was occupied by a huge glacier which filled the valley above the level of the present watershed, and extended into the Moray Firth. This glacier found the shattered along the fault easy to erode, which accounts for the great depth of Loch Ness to 600ft BELOW sea-level. The sub-marine sides of the loch are glacially smoothed and very steep. Above Foyers at the deepest section, there is 500ft of water only 60ft out from the bank!
