The Loch Ness Monster has been one of the most enduring myths of the last two centuries. In fact, the legend may be even older if you take into account the supposed sighting by St Columba in the 6th Century Ever since the first modern age sighting of a ‘log like’ object by D MacKenzie in 1871 speculations about what might be lurking in the depths of the 263 thousand million cubic feet of water that constitutes the largest body of water in the whole of the United Kingdom. Attempts to discover the truth of the matter have even extended so far as to an ambitious one million pound (~$1,524,674) project to scan the entire Loch using sonar called Operation Deepscan.
George Edwards, A Scottish boat captain as well as a Loch Ness Monster hunter, recently captured an extraordinary picture while searching for the sunken remains of a steam engine near the infamous Loch.
Edwards, who has hunted the beast for twenty six years says the object seemed to be heading towards Urquhart Castle. Edwards claims to have viewed the creature for around five minutes.
