This large pike head is known as the Endrick Pike.
It was found dead, stranded near the mouth of the River Endrick on the banks of Loch Lomond in 1934. It became part of Major Christie's collection at Ross Priory.
In 1967 it came to the attention of four visiting pike anglers, who speculated on its weight. One of them suggested it might weigh as much as 70lbs (31.75kg).
Because only the head exists, it is very difficult to estimate the original weight of the fish when it was alive.
The Scottish record for a pike (caught by Tommy Morgan in Loch Lomond in 1945) currently stands at 47lb 11oz (21.64kg).
