Description: My son and I were driving back from shopping at the coop in Broadford. The road home makes a U around the sea loch of Loch Slapin. We first saw this multi coloured kind of rugby ball shaped thing with points up and down. At first we thought it was some kind of mad lights on the other side, on the mountain.
As we drove around the loch we saw that it was above the middle of the loch about 200 to 300 meters in the air still and making no sound or movement. It was large and definitely not a paper balloon or anything we had ever seen. I stopped the car and we both got out and looked at the thing for several minuets, my son had his phone with a camera and tried several times to take a photo but the pictures just came out as a blur.
At one point we got a scared, got back in the car and drove home. I don't know why we never reported it, it is truly the strangest thing I have ever experienced. Just a foot note, we were both stone cold sober.
