Fears were starting to grow the mythical creature had died after no one captured images of her in 2013.
Now, satellite pictures which show a creature swimming below the surface of the loch just south of Dores have been found in Apple’s map app.
The photographs, which could only be seen on some iPads and iPhones, were spotted by two different amateur Nessie hunters, Peter Thain from Northumberland and Andy Dixon from County Durham.
Mr Dixon said: "It was purely by accident that I came across the image. I was trawling through satellite transmissions of different parts of the country and I thought I would try Loch Ness.
