From The Inquisitor:
The above picture was snapped by boat skipper Marcus Atkinson, who took the shot of the
wavy green lineunidentified living monster at a depth of 75ft with a sonar fish-finder device. Atkinson estimates the purported creature is almost 5 feet wide.
Atkinson, who operates - shock! - a tourist boat, recounted the sighting:
"I was dropping customers at Urquhart Castle and then got my boat out of the way of the other tour companies. I moved out into the water and looked at the sonar and saw this image had appeared. The device takes a reading of the depth and what is below the boat every quarter of a second and gradually builds up a picture, so it covered a time of about five minutes.
"The object got bigger and bigger and I thought "bloody hell" and took a picture with my mobile phone. There is nothing that big in the Loch. I was in shock as it looked like a big serpent, it's amazing. You can't fake a sonar image. I have never seen anything returned like this on the fish finder. It is a bizarre shape to me. I have shown it to other experienced skippers and none of us know what it was. I have seen a lot of pictures in 21 years of being here but this is the most clearest image yet. Undoubtedly, there is something in the loch."
