’Allo ’Allo, what’s this we see on Loch Ness
TOURING celebrities are the latest Highland visitors to claim a “sighting” of the Loch Ness Monster.
Cast members of the TV-turned-stage show ’Allo ’Allo were said to be “more than a little shocked” while cruising on the loch where they believe they caught a glimpse of a “Nessie-shaped image” on their vessel’s sonar screen.
The actors had taken the opportunity to visit the loch while in the area for stage performances at Eden Court Theatre in Inverness.
The crew of the Jacobite Queen witnessed unusual readings on the ship’s sonar screen between the village of Dores and Urquhart Castle.
According to the skipper, John Askew, it was the first time in his 15 years of working on the loch that he picked up such images on any of the Jacobite fleet’s sonar screens. The images have been sent for scientific analysis.
Loch Ness Project sonar expert Adrian Shine said: “This has got me puzzled. The fact there’s five items on the screen can be explained – a single object often appears again as an echo.”
’Allo ’Allo star Vicki Michelle, who was on board the boat, said: “I went down to the boat’s cabin and caught an arch shape on the monitor, followed by four more.”
