A new sighting of the Loch Ness monster has been shared and is claimed to be "possibly the clearest evidence" of Nessie's existance this year, according to a dedicated centre.
The Loch Ness Centre in Drumnadrochit – which was revamped with a new visitor experience this summer – thas recently reported a new sighting captured by John Howell on Sunday, October 8.
According to the centre, Mr Howell spotted something "mysterious" in the Loch which was moving slowly towards the tree line before it disappeared.
The man estimated it to be around 12 to 15 feet long.
Talking about the sighting, Paul Nixon, general manager of the Loch Ness Centre, said: ‘At the Loch Ness Centre we love hearing about these encounters with Nessie, which add to the phenomenon boasting over 1,000 eyewitness accounts and recorded sightings, alongside lots of unexplained evidence.
"At the Loch Ness Centre, guests can hear real people’s stories, discover artefacts, and listen to scientific debate on the existence of Nessie, to help them make their own mind up on images such as this.’
The latest sighting from John comes after hundreds of volunteers and media participated in the largest surface area search of Loch Ness in 50 years this summer, a "hunt" arranged by the Loch Ness Centre.
During the weekend event, numerous potential sightings and strange noises heard from the depths of Loch Ness were recorded.
The last sightings added to the official register were recorded on August 27 and August 31.
