Loch Ness monster hunters are renewing their efforts to try and find the fabled beast using new, cutting-edge technology.
Organisers are asking for volunteers to help them make a concerted effort to watch the loch for three days and record what they see.
Steve Feltham, a renowned monster hunter is expected to give a talk to volunteers, The Sun reports.

He said: “I’m very excited. The more eyes that are on the water the better.
“I look at the loch every day. I could see something that changes everything within five minutes.
“It’s a lottery as to when someone will solve the mystery, but the more we look the more likely it is to happen.”
This will be the first major hunt for the monster since 1972.
Part of the operation will include the use of thermal drones.
They will produce thermal imaging of the loch in the hope that it will lead the monster hunters to some new leads.
A hydrophone will also be deployed in a bid to listen out for signals.
Alan McKenna, of Loch Ness Exploration, said: “Since starting LNE, it’s always been our goal to record, study and analyse all manner of natural behaviour and phenomena that may be more challenging to explain.
“It’s our hope to inspire a new generation of Loch Ness enthusiasts.
“By joining this large-scale surface watch, you’ll have a real opportunity to personally contribute towards this fascinating mystery that has captivated so many people from around the world.”
Steve, who quit his job to look for the beast, said: “Since the last search there hasn’t been that joined up an approach.
“You’ve had me sitting with my binoculars and loads of people out on their own. This could change everything.”
The dedicated weekend will take place on August 26 and 27 and, for £45, people can head out on the Deepscan boat.
Paul Nixon, general manager of the Loch Ness Centre, said: “We are guardians of this unique story.
“As well as investing in creating an unforgettable experience for visitors, we are committed to helping continue the search and unveil the mysteries that lie underneath the waters of the famous loch.
“The weekend gives an opportunity to search the waters in a way that has never been done before, and we can’t wait to see what we find.”
