The world's last sea-going paddle steamer has sustained 'minor damage' after it struck the pier at Rothesay in the Firth of Clyde.
The Waverley was on a regular passenger-carrying trip when the incident took place at about 15:00. It is not thought anyone was injured.
The steam ship, which was launched in 1946, is operated by a charity, the Waverley Steam Navigation Company.
Passengers have been told all weekend cruises will be cancelled.

Wemyss Bay: PS Waverley at speed off Wemyss Bay on 11 July 2017. Unfortunately she has been off service for several days now due to repairs to her air-pump. Not ideal at the height of the Clyde season.
