The Caledonia MacBrayne ferry, the MV Isle of Arran, was reversing into the harbour at Kennacraig at about 0930 GMT, after sailing from Islay .

The ferry, which was also carrying a few commercial vehicles, hit the pier but no-one was hurt in the incident.

A spokesman for the ferry company said early indications were that a mechanical fault was to blame.

Engineers are now assessing damage to the pier, which is not thought to be too severe.
