The Loch Duich Thing

Over at the Loch Ness Mystery blog, there’s an interesting new post (including a photo, which is also shown in close-up) of an old story that is guaranteed to catch the attention of devotees of all-things lake-monster-based.

Precisely what the picture – taken in 1953 at Loch Duich, Scotland – shows is quite another matter! The appendage of a killer-whale? The head and neck of a mystery animal? Take a look and see for yourself…

And, as you’ll see from this link, Loch Duich has a very controversial Loch Ness Monster link attached to it too, as well as a curious legend of “seal-maidens” inhabiting its waters…

Note: the old, copyright-expired photo above is used for illustration only. It’s not from the loch itself.
