Loch Ness sighting? Apple maps appears to have found mythical creature

QMI Agency



A Loch Ness hunter in Scotland says there is now irrefutable proof that the mythical creature exists.

Andy Dixon told the Daily Mail he was "trawling through satellite transmissions of different parts of the country and I thought I would try Loch Ness.

"I could see something big under the water and I saved it to my phone. My first thought was that it was the monster and I contacted Gary Campbell of the Official Loch Ness Monster Club."

He said the image does not appear on Google's satellite images of the loch, only those used by Apple's mapping application.



According to, Apple's overhead imagery is provided by satellite firm DigitalGlobe, though it is not immediately clear what Apple or DigitalGlobe have done to make the combined solution more suitable for those combing for cryptids like Bigfoot.

Campbell is convinced the image is of the elusive beast.

"Now that we have spies in the skies above Loch Ness, maybe we will get more sightings which will whet the appetite of more down to earth Nessie hunters to come north," Campbell told the paper.

"Furthermore, the use of satellite technology means that if Nessie is just swimming below the surface like in this case, we can still pick her up."
