The Loch Ness monster has been spotted on a sonar.
Various sightings of the mythical Scottish creature have been reported in the past few months but one man now claims he has a recording of the creature.
Brandon Scanlon, of the official Loch Ness Monster sightings register, captured the picture whilst on the ‘Nessie Hunter’ vessel.
The official register states: “Benjamin Scanlon was on holiday with his family and took a trip on the ‘Nessie Hunter’ of Loch Ness Cruises. He spotted something on the sonar on the boat and caught the image. Captain Mike of the boat estimated it to be 3-4 metres in length, at a depth of about 20 metres, while the boat was in water about 40 metres deep.”
The legend of the Loch Ness Monster dates back to 565AD and was said to have been spotted 13 times in the last year alone, although the existence of the elusive creature is still yet to be proved.
Plesiosaurus typically grew to a length of around 11ft according to fossil records, placing its size right in the middle of the Captain’s estimate.
Recent sightings have included a Mr Veacock claiming to have seen an unidentified creature rise two feet from the water before descending back to the peaty depths while on holiday late last month.
In another incident, a father and daughter claimed to have seen Nessie moving through the water while hiking nearby.
