Scotland’s STV News has reported that the legend of Nessie is alive and well after a mysterious “monstrous” shape was caught on camera.

The legend of the LOCH NESS MONSTER resurfaced when landscape designer, Richard Preston, spotted a mysterious shape and snapped a series of images of what some believe might be the notorious Nessie.

The 27-year old Mr Preston spotted multiple, humped shapes on the loch’s surface out of the corner of his eye, while working on Aldourie Castle gardens on the banks of the Loch Ness. He described the event to reporters:

“I was just walking through the castle gardens and I spotted something in the distance. When I looked closer I could clearly see the four hump-like features. I thought I’d take a picture of it, to see if there was anything in it, to see what others thought… I was surprised that it stayed there as long as it did. I took various shots of it before it suddenly disappeared. I literally just turned my back and it was gone.”

When asked whether or not he believed in the legendary LAKE MONSTER, Preston said:

“Well there’s definitely something in the myth.There were no ripples in the water, no boats, nothing around. I have no idea what it was, but it undoubtedly looks like Nessie.”

This latest sighting has brought hope to crypto-enthusiasts worldwide, as fears had been mounting that Nessie might be dead due to diminishing reports of odd creatures in the loch. Perhaps this is the rebirth of an iconoclastic cryptid… we can only wait — and hope.
