Footage taken by amateur photographer David Elder of a dark object in Loch Ness has appeared online.
The 50-year-old filmed the mysterious disturbance in the water from the south-west side of the loch near Fort Augustus. The footage shows what appears to be a dark object beneath the water producing a wave as it moves from right to left.
Elder was photographing a swan when he noticed the unusual wake. "I'm convinced this was caused by a solid black object under the water," he said. "The water was very still at the time and there were no ripples coming off the wave and no other activity on the water."
The video, which was published by the Mail Online, can be viewed below.
