The next set of pictures are from the attempt of Paul Collins and Co to sail the Loch Ness in a raft and to capture the monster and hence raise money for charity.


Why they did it. A local newspaper story on the risks created by a lack of hospital equipment.


A shot of Paul Collins and friends at 57 Stanton Avenue attempting to get the raft onto a trailer.

The raft enters the loch.
