The cargo ship 'UFA' - a russian owned vessel - arrived at the James Watt Dock in Greenock just after lunch.
She had a collision with the West Pier at Ayr harbour.
The damage is clearly visible, and she will now be assessed for repair work.
Although unconfirmed I understand she had a problem with her steering gear.
