A walker at Loch Ness saw something unusual in the water – and caught it on camera.

Trevor Ross, who is an offshore worker, was walking on Dores beach at the weekend when he saw something in the loch.

Last week, at the same spot, another Inverness man saw something the "the size of a bus" moving around in the water.

Confessing to be a Nessie-believer, Mr Ross, who is from Inverness, said: "I have been along Dores beach loads, and I never seen anything like that before in the water moving.

"It might have been a log.

"My wife Sarah and our Golden Retriever Mally were out for a walk on Dores Beach late afternoon, about 4.15pm, on Saturday September 26.

"We parked car at Dores Inn and walked along the shore away from tourists.

"At the next slipway, as we walked along throwing sticks into water I noticed the shape moving out in water.

"Then Mally started barking I said to Sarah 'look that’s Nessie' – she laughed said it looked more like alligator .

"So I took few photos and the video.

"Our dog ,Mally, the big girl that she is, started shaking making noises so we took her home to dry off. I think she got spooked."
