There have been several reports of a seal in Loch Ness (Anon, 1933; 1934; 1934) and beyond Loch Ness in the River Oich (Harvie-Brown and Buckley, 1895, p183), but these reports were not supported by photographs and were not believed.
The seal was seen in the river exit of Loch Ness at Lochend on four separate occasions (Dec. 1, Dec. 21, Jan. 13, Feb. 8) yet it did not descend the river to the sea.
In former times in Loch Awe, however, when the outlet river flowed freely to the sea, seals were seen: "The seal comes up from the ocean, through a very rapid river, into Loch Awe in quest for salmon, and retires to the sea at the approach of winter".

 Rogue Nessie
Under normal river conditions the velocity of the water moving through these gaps is considered too vigorous to be overcome by any swimming creature.(1) But when the river is swollen by heavy rains (common in January and February) the weirs are practically submerged and the current runs through the gaps at a much reduced speed(2).
Recorded sightings of unidentified animals in the River Ness serve to validate the notion that the river, when swollen by heavy rains, is indeed a viable route of entry into Loch Ness from the sea.
The loch rose and the River Ness was in spate.
