MYSTERY surrounds a big bang that was heard in Tarbert on the night of November 17.
The loud noise was heard right across the town and with many people thinking it had happened either inside, or just outside, their house.
The sudden noise also terrified local pets.
When some people went outside to investigate they found nothing amiss and no signs of damage.
A local police officer said he had heard it.
The police were called but were at a loss as to what it was and said they wouldn’t be investigating any further.
Small earthquakes can sometimes be heard as loud bangs
but the British Geological survey confirmed there had been no activity recorded.
The suggestion that it was a sonic boom from a plane was quickly dismissed, another theory was that it could be the Ministry of Defence (MOD) on exercises nearby.
