A monster hunter who has spent 26 years searching for the Loch Ness Monster claims to have taken the "best picture ever" of the beast, after dedicating 60 hours a week to his quest.
Nessie hunter George Edwards waited 26 years for this moment - and he now believes he has the best picture ever taken of the Loch Ness monster.
He spends his life on the loch - around 60 hours a week - taking tourists out on his boat Nessie Hunter IV, and has led numerous Nessie hunts over the years.
But this image is the one that's convinced him that there really is a monster or monsters - out there. It shows a mysterious dark hump moving in the water towards Urquhart Castle.
"I was just about to return to Temple Pier (in Drumnadrochit) and I went to the back of the boat which was facing the pier and that's when I saw it," said 60-year-old Mr Edwards, a lifelong believer in the monster. "It was slowly moving up the loch towards Urquhart Castle and it was a dark grey colour. It was quite a fair way from the boat, probably about half a mile away but it's difficult to tell in water."

Looks like the carp I see around here gazing in the weeds.
Finally! Now I can sleep in peace.
Needs something to indicate scale.
Nessie?! It is obviously Sasquatch taking a swim.. anyone can see that!
It looks very small to me.
I think Big Foot went for a swim...
If that’s a half mile away, I want to know how high off the water that boat is to get that angle.
I’m guessing its no more than 50 feet away and its a fish. After all, this guy apparently makes his living convincing people that there’s a monster in the lake.
Notice the tower ruins in the upper right. That structure seems to appear in a lot of Nessie photos, but if somebody knew the dimensions of it, then you could get an idea.
Also looks like a different perspective than that which would have been taken from a boat.
Have you seen the laser fish arrowheads? Sportsmans Guide has them for $40 or so.
Looks to me like somebody didn’t “dump at the pump”.
Not without knowing what type of lens he had on his camera...
I believe that is Urquhart Castle. Per Wikipedia, it’s associated with many Nessie sightings.
I do believe that the structure is Urquhart Castle. Been several years since I was there last, but it does look like it.
But its definite proof nonetheless!
Most Scottish castle ruins are probably no taller than a three story building. At most this boat would have been 3/4 of a mile from that castle.
