The Glasgow-based vessel hit Rothesay Pier in the Isle of Bute shortly after 3pm on Friday, damaging the front of the boat. Waverly Excursions, which manages the steamer, has cancelled its cruises this weekend following the crash. 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."
