A mum and daughter were left shocked after they spotted a "black lump" in Scottish waters, in a suspected Loch Ness Monster sighting.
They noticed the mysterious creature as they were walking along the bank of Loch Ness shortly before 5.30pm on Tuesday, October 11.
The pair said they were visiting from the East of Scotland when they noticed a long break in the water, which was otherwise "still and calm."

Their discovery, which was just 200 yards off the bank, has been recorded as the sixth sighting this year on the official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register.
They said: "As we watched a black lump appeared out of the water and sat for approximately 30 seconds before disappearing once again under the water.
"After another 30 seconds, the black lump resurfaced for a shorter amount of time before disappearing under the water again."
They added that the mysterious lump appeared to be "boxy in shape" and about the size of a football, reports Daily Record.
The pair said that the creature seemed to be bobbing up from under the surface before disappearing and resurfacing to do the same a second time.
It's been several months since the last official sighting, which occurred earlier this year in August, when a local resident was able to film what appeared to be a small wake moving against prevailing currents on the loch.

Record keeper Gary Campbell, who has recorded over a thousand sightings, said that the sighting lasted around seven minutes.
Campbell has recorded more than 1136 alleged sightings of Nessie over the past 26 years.
He previously stated that the start of the year and the end of winter is usually a quiet time for the monster.
16 official sightings of the Loch Ness Monster were recorded last year.
