‘Loch Ness Monster’ is ‘spotted’ on drone footage from wild camper
| Last updated
People have spent decades looking for the Loch Ness Monster, but one man accidentally 'spotted' the mythical beast whilst filming on his drone.
The clip has resurfaced as volunteers conduct the biggest hunt for 'Nessie' in fifty years, hoping to prove once and for all that something does lurk beneath the Scottish waters.
Whilst the jury is still out on the monster's existence, you can watch the clip and decide for yourself whether it's the fabled beast.
The incredible clip was filmed by Richard Mavor, who runs the adventure-based YouTube channel Richard Outdoors.
Unaware of what he'd capture, 54-year-old only realised what he'd recorded after re-watching the video he had taken in Scotland with his 4k drone.
He later uploaded the clip on his channel where he, by accident, caught a mysterious figure swimming on the banks of the loch.
Speaking to the Daily Record he said: "I couldn't believe it".
"I had to rewind the footage several times and have watched it several times since. I don't know what it is but it certainly has the same shape as previous sightings of Nessie.
"The more I watch it I think 'crikey! There really wasn't anything in the area that could be'.
"There was no driftwood or anything like that so who knows."
He continued: "We had just parked up and I thought I would get some nice shots on the beach for my YouTube.
"I didn't notice what I had picked up until others told me to watch out for it.
"It could be a trick of the light but we can't be sure."
The mystery of the Loch Ness Monster has been puzzled over since the 1930's when the first supposed sighting happened in the Scottish Highlands. The creature is often described as large, long-necked, and with one or more humps protruding from the water - and its existence is yet to be proven solidly.
The video was posted to YouTube last September and has since racked up 14,00 views, help Richard promote the charity work he'd been doing.
At the time, he'd been taking part in the 'Great Glen Canoe Challenge' for Alzheimer's Society and viewers have been taking to the comments in awe of his efforts.
One user commented: "Fantastic fun to watch this Richard! Your individual 'interviews' were a great idea.
"Drone shots were beautiful to see and the shot that you got from the well wisher of all of you in formation, was spectacular!!!! What a super adventure!
"Thanks for once again for taking us along! And congratulations to you all!"
A second user added: "Well done one and all. What an achievement! Glad you finished 'all together', that made it sort of special and 'United against Dementia'.
"Thanks for all your work on the water and in the 'cutting room'!"
Whilst he may be helping scientists find a cure for Alzheimers, they have quite figure out whether the monster is real sadly.
