Despite the lack of tourists, there have been 12 reported sightings of the Loch Ness Monster this year.
There are few cryptozoological creatures as well known as the Loch Ness Monster - an elusive plesiosaur-like beast said to lurk in the depths of Scotland's most voluminous loch.
Back at the end of last year we reported that there had been a bumper number of sightings over the preceding 12 months, with Gary Campbell - keeper of the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register - declaring that 2019 was one of the busiest on record with a total of 18 sightings.
Now it turns out that 2020 isn't far behind with 12 reported sightings of the monster so far - a particularly impressive figure given how few tourists have been to the loch during the pandemic.
