Early in the winter of 2003 I had recently passed my driving test and was going for a run in my car with my friend ? and his girlfriend. I am from the Falkirk area so we came up through Torphichen and were not really heading in any particular direction. I was just happy to be driving and the view from the car was perfect. I saw a sign for Cairnpapple and recognised it so i started heading up that way and I passed the lay by at Cairnpapple.
(see earlier post for parts 1 and 2) The encounters at Paull seemed to be intensifying as if this thing was ‘testing’ us. Seeing how far it could go. This particular night we had lots of snow in Hull and the Paull area. By the time we got to our spot down Newlands lane the snow was a couple inches deep at least but it had stopped. My memory is hazy but i believe it was either late 02 or very early 03. Our routine and sightings of ‘it’ had taken over the pool games. Now we didn’t go out for pool as such but more to experience this…whatever it was. Driving down the lane turning round and then pulling over in the passing place on the left had become routine although the snow bound road and countryside gave a different dimension to things. The most obvious being everything was much ‘brighter’ It was cold and very quiet as I let Patch back in the boot. We sat in the car, windows half down having our smokes talking in low voices. Watching the bend in the road ahead carefully, ears pricked for any noise..nothing?? There was no unusual activity.
NORTHERN IRELAND — A man says he has spotted an unknown creature walking on two legs in a Northern Ireland mountain range.
The man, an avid hiker in his 50’s who chose to remain anonymous, said he was exploring an isolated area of the Sperrin Mountains in December 2015 when he came upon the unidentified creature.
“I had walked to three hill tops surrounded by dense forest and was heading back up a hill towards a tree line to my car,” he told Debbie Crossley Hatswell, who has been investigating the Bigfoot phenomenon in the United Kingdom for a few years.
This is Isabella from the far north, somewhere in Scotland where, if you recall, it appears a family of Bigfoot have become habituated to a locality near my home. For more than a year I’ve observed what I can of their presence, after the alpha male of this clan appeared on the hill above my cottage, making himself known for reasons I’m still trying to figure out.
As you know, it’s become clear that his clan communicate — generally undetected — through bird calls. And what I thought an unusual presence of a huge band of owls in the woods next to my home is actually bigfoot conversing on their travels between the mountains beyond and the river below. And he watches me as well, having made a hidey-hole in the rhododendron shrubbery over the lane, where he can see me at the dining table as I write. It even seems that this bigfoot throws primitive woven stick-toys into the garden for my dog.
I was in contact today with a lovely lady who I shall refer to as Isabella, before I continue I would like to keep Isabella’s identity and area a secret, as the account unfolds you will no doubt understand why.
The witness herself was happy to be named, but we both decided in the interest of our Forest Friends Anonymity was probably the best route to take. I can’t thank Isabella enough for allowing me to share this moving and inspiring account with you all.
According to an article in the Daily Star Newspaper
Chilling accounts of the UK’s own Bigfoot are fairly common, and many claim to have spotted a glimpse of an ape-like creature roaming the countryside. It comes just months after a photographer told Daily Star Online that he may have captured the first ever footage of a Bigfoot roaming the British countryside.
One such bizarre sighting has been reported by monster hunter Jonathan Downes, who says he had a very “peculiar” encounter which he “still can’t explain” today. While investigating a string of sightings at Bolam lake near Newcastle in Northumberland he claims to have seen an man-like person leaping through a bog.
Torphins Aberdeen – A Huge Hairy Figure Chases Car, July 1994
(Posted in The Fortean Times 2006) Local men, Pete and George, were walking through a forestry track in woods near their home in Torphins, Aberdeen. When they were nearing the end of the track, Pete saw a dark figure run from the trees on the left across the track, before disappearing into the trees on the right. At first Pete thought it was a man but the figure left a strange foreboding in him. George did not see the figure and was busy telling Pete he was imagining things when a face appeared from the trees behind Pete’s back and looked right at George. George was chilled to the bone as the face “looked human, but was not human”. It darted away just as quickly, and for some reason George threw a large stone in it’s direction. The two friends then left the area feeling somewhat unnerved, but as it was a walk they had to do on a regular basis, they knew they would have to return.
A Local Researcher’s Account: I was in the Clava Cairns area today and spoke to a croft owner who has a croft at the north end of the railway viaduct that runs over the river Nairn. Whilst discussing this month’s wild man sighting at Clava Cairns, Witness A stated that he had seen the same figure also. He told our researcher that he had seen ‘the big hairy man’ walking along the railway line in a southerly direction from the forestry behind his croft towards the viaduct/cairns on quite a few occasions, but he couldn’t be pinned down to an exact number of times! He also said his dogs were going nuts each time. Also with the witness was another man who wished to remain anonymous for reason that will become clear.
