For centuries, the Loch Ness Monster has brought worldwide crowds to Scotland in hopes for a glimpse of this mysterious creature.

But Steve Feltham holds the record for longest continuous vigil hunting for the Loch Ness Monster at 25 years.

He told The Guardian in 2008 his goal was to find the monster himself.

But he also hopes to make photos of any current sightings available to the public - previous photos of the monster revealed to be hoax photos.

Feltham lives in a mobile home that after a decade of searching - was no longer so mobile.

He now parks the home south of the lake on Dores beach.

But monster hunting doesn't exactly pay the bills. Feltham's primary source of income has been clay Nessie models that he sells on his web site.

So, no sightings of the Loch Ness Monster for Feltham - but it's certainly an unusual hobby.
