A recent news item appeared about a large carcass washed up near Aberdeen on a beach:
MYSTERY surrounds what appears to be a gigantic skeleton found washed up on a Scottish beach during Storm Ciara.
Locals were left baffled after a snap of what looked like a rotten carcass was posted online earlier this week, with some suggesting it could be the remains of the Loch Ness Monster.
It is probably a whale carcass but it is not the first time a sea monster has been seen in the area.
In December 1898 a sea captain returning from haddock fishing saw a huge creature in the water off the coast of Stonehaven, a village near Aberdeen.The creature was described as finny,over 34 feet long and a back the size of a upturned boat .The captain and his men were said to be honest and not prone to fancy.Plus being fishermen They would have seen many whales etc would know the difference. Another boat reported a great disturbance in the water but it was foggy and they couldn't see the cause of the commotion.

Unless of course the carcass was a descendant of the 1898 sea monster
