London: A new sonar image of a large mysterious object beneath the surface of Loch Ness has sparked fresh speculation about the existence of the mythical Nessie the monster.
The screen shot shows a distinctly-shaped outline in deep water, close to Urquhart Castle, near Drumnadrochit, on the western shore.
And it follows recent satellite images, believed by some to be Nessie, who has eluded hunters for 80 years.
The eerie pictures, captured way above the Scottish Highlands, attracted worldwide interest, the Mirror reported.
Recorded just afterwards, the latest image was picked up by sonar equipment aboard the flagship vessel of Inverness-based Jacobite Cruises.
