Has sonar finally found the Loch Ness Monster?


From The Daily Mail

Just a fortnight after the Loch Ness Monster was 'spotted' on Apple Maps, an 'unusual' sonar image appears to have captured the elusive creature too.

The screenshot tracked movement of a large object, deep below the surface, close to Urquhart Castle in Inverness.

Both reports have reignited interest in the quest for the legendary monster, which has been the subject of various hoaxes and myths over the past 80 years.

'The Jacobite Queen spends every day sailing up and down the loch with the sonar on, and this reading is the most unusual we have seen for quite some time.

'It's impossible to tell what we've picked up here, but along with those satellite images, you can't help feeling that reports of the Loch Ness Monster's demise may be premature.

‘Nessie captures the imagination of people all over the world and, if anything, the speculation around lack of recent sightings has increased that interest.'

Last October, the man who took a picture billed as ‘the best ever taken of the Loch Ness monster’ admitted it was a fake.

George Edwards, 61, who also operates a cruise boat on the loch, insisted the picture, published worldwide in August 2012 had been ‘just a bit of fun’.

The alleged shots of the monster had, in fact, been a fibre glass hump.

The original so-called Surgeon's Photograph, taken by Dr Robert Kenneth Wilson and published in the Daily Mail on 21 April 1934, supposedly showed the monster's head and neck, but was also later proved to be a hoax.

This new sonar image has been revealed just weeks after satellite images attracted global attention.

The photographs showed an enormous reptilian 'creature' lurking beneath the loch's waters.

A shadowy form measuring around 100ft long (30 metres) with two giant flippers powering it through the waters of Loch Ness was photographed by a satellite and spotted on the Apple Maps app.

The image was studied for six months by experts at the Official Loch Ness Monster Fan Club, who concluded it was ‘likely’ to be the elusive beast.

This new 'sighting' will cause fresh excitement among frustrated Nessie hunters, following more than a year without a glimpse of the monster.
