This weekend's Waverley sailings have been cancelled after an incident at Rothesay Pier at 3pm on Friday.
According to national reports, the vessel hit Rothesay Pier in the Isle of Bute, damaging the front of the boat. Passengers were on board the Wavereley when the accident happened.

Photos of the vessel which have appeared on social media show slight damage to the bow.

Consequently, Waverley Excursions, which manages the steamer, has cancelled its cruises this weekend.

The firm said: "Unfortunately Waverley's cruises this weekend will not be operating as minor damage was sustained today which requires repair. Please return tickets for a refund."

The Waverley was out of action during a week of the Glasgow Fair due to necessary repairs of the vessel, as Waverley Excursions awaited a bespoke part.
