Steve Feltham has spent three decades watching over Loch Ness for signs of the enigmatic monster.
For most people, looking for signs of the elusive Loch Ness Monster amounts of glancing over the water in the hope of catching a brief glimpse of a dark shape disappearing beneath the murk.
For Steve Feltham, however, looking for the creature has become a life-long obsession.
Originally from Dorset, Feltham began his search for the world’s most famous lake monster back in 1991 after being fascinated by the possibility of its existence.
Having given up his house, his job and his girlfriend to focus on finding the elusive beast, he now lives in a mobile home which is parked on a permanent basis on the shores of the loch at Dores.
He has since made a living selling miniature models of the monster to visiting tourists.
Now, 30 years on, his passion for finding the creature remains strong.
“I am a free man doing exactly the thing I love doing,” he told The Press and Journal.
“I’m not trying to show the world ‘here’s the final proof that solves the mystery’, I’m addicted to the chase. I’m addicted to finding the new pieces of evidence.”
“That’s what keeps me going, that adventure.”
