A GIGANTIC skeleton washed up on an Aberdeenshire beach during a storm has prompted online speculation over what it could be – including the suggestion it might be Nessie.

A photograph of the carcass was posted on social media in the wake of Storm Ciara, which brought strong wind gusts to the whole of the UK.

Hundreds of people have joined in the debate about what the mystery object might be via the community group, Fubar News.

Suggestions included the skeleton of a whale while other ideas included a salt water crocodile and the vertebrae of a brontosaurus, or diplodocus.

Other contributors joining in the fun reckoned it was a rarely-seen deep sea haggis, or a Chinese New Year dragon.

Various people suggested it was Nessie.

Brian Ingram said: "Nessie! Escaped to the sea but then came to a sticky end."

Emma-Louise Bolland had a similar view: "Nessie! Could not adapt to salt water," she said.
