“Couple ‘want to believe’ they filmed mythical Nessie before early morning swim”

A pair of individuals express their hopeful belief that they might have captured footage of the Loch Ness Monster after observing an enigmatic form before embarking on an early morning swim in Loch Ness.

Aga Balinska, aged 42, and Matty Wiles, aged 49, decided to forgo their vacation plans to the Lake District upon learning about the most extensive search for the legendary creature in half a century, scheduled for this weekend.

Undeterred by heavy rainfall on Saturday, they joined other enthusiasts from around the world and woke up at 6:30 am on Sunday to venture into the loch for a swim. Emerging from their swim, they noticed a curving shape on the horizon that subsequently shifted to the left before vanishing.

Although they remain uncertain about whether it truly was Nessie, they maintain a hopeful perspective, stating, “We aren’t sure it’s Nessie, we can’t be 100% certain. We want to believe it.”

Ms. Balinska likened the sighting to the “humps” often sold in Scottish gift shops to recreate the image of Nessie at home. This couple, hailing from Hull in East Yorkshire, share a profound fascination with the Loch Ness Monster. Mr. Wiles remarked,

“We were booked to go to the Lake District a couple of weeks ago but heard about this on social media.

“We cancelled so we could go.
“We aren’t sure it’s Nessie, we can’t be 100% certain.
“We want to believe it.
“We went down to the beach at 6.30am and we saw it before we got in the water.
“We wanted to swim out to it but it was too far out.
“We turned and it had gone to the left, then it disappeared.
“The loch was like a millpond, there was no mistaking it for a wave.
“It stood out three or four feet from the water.”
Ms Balinska said: “At first we were really excited about it.
“It looked like the humps which you can get to put on a shelf, in a gift shop.
“We didn’t expect any of that to happen, we heard there were a few other people who saw something.
“It was a really good day out.”
