The Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register has recorded another sighting of something unexplained in the water, bringing the total so far this year to nine.
A sketch was provided for the latest reported sighting which happened on July 30.
The register, which is kept by Gary Campbell, states: "Mr Veacock visiting from the North West of England was parked up in the last lay by north of the castle scanning the loch with his binoculars when he noticed something two thirds across the loch away.
"He originally thought it was a foot high and some five foot long, but later was able to compare it with the Jacobite Warrior as it passed by the area.
"As such, he stated that what he observed was easily the length of the handrail at the rear of that boat which led him to re-assess what he saw as nearly two foot high and ten to twelve feet long.
"He said the same was witnessed by two other families in the layby."
He provided a sketch of what he saw.
It follows a sighting on July 19 reported by a man and his daughter hillwalking above Fort Augustus while they were visiting from Chester.
