Sounds like they're gearing up for tourist season on the shores of Loch Ness, at least.
Is this the Loch Ness Monster? Sonar picture shows 'serpent-like creature' at bottom of mysterious loch
the rest, with pictures, at Daily Mail link above---
The sonar picture, that shows a large unidentified living object deep underwater, was recorded by Loch Ness boat skipper Marcus Atkinson.
The mysterious being was recorded at a depth of 75ft in the murky water and measured nearly 5ft wide.
Mr Atkinson’s sonar fish-finder device records the width of objects in the depths directly below his tourist boat every quarter of a second.
Image produced when his vessel was in the Loch's Urquhart Bay showed a long moving object that had followed the boat for more than two minutes.
The consistent marks on Mr Atkinson's sonar create a horizontal mass, which is not an indicator of length.
But excited Loch Ness monster experts have ruled out the ‘sighting’ being any other fish, seal or wood debris and believe it is proof of an unknown creature in the Loch.
Stories abound of similar sightings in Scottish, English, and Welsh lochs, lakes, and llyns.
I'd guess there's something odd in Loch Ness. And it's publicity hungry!
I wouldn't be surprised if there was some sort of aquatic animal that may be a holdover from older times. Not quite sure if I believe in Nessie, but there are some crazy known sea creatures out there.

We're all ears for a description of the beast - any thread accomodating the Ness can also open itself to other rarities in the UK.
Daily Mail just loves this topic; and so do I:
'The most convincing Nessie photograph ever': Skipper claims
to have finally found proof that Loch Ness Monster exists
Sturgeon no, elusive leviathan yes!! lol; the story and the picture and two - TWO! - Nessie sidebars (hiccup) at link aboveHe has dedicated more than two decades of his life to the hunt for the elusive Loch Ness monster, spending 60 hours a week on the water.
And now George Edwards believes he has finally fulfilled his ambition of spotting 'Nessie'; he even photographic evidence to prove it.
"had the picture independently verified by a team of US military monster experts"
I didn't know there was such a thing as a "military monster expert".
That's a great picture - it even seems to have the classic "horsey head" that viewers always mention.

I thought it looked like a bloated sturgeon, floating accountably upright, on top of the loch's waters but I'm not going to say so because I'm on (drumroll) #TeamNessie!
