A cruise liner went aground on the Corran Ledge on Monday evening,May 20 2013,in Oban Bay near St Columba’s Cathedral.
It would appear that the 87-metre MS Serenissima,which was recently refurbished by Serenissima Cruises and is out to charter currently to Noble Caledonia,went the wrong way round a navigation buoy,as she encountered the MV Isle of Mull ferry,when she entered Oban Bay in Argyll from the north.
All 112 people on the ship remained on board and no-one was believed to be injured in the incident.
The initial attempt to refloat the ship using its own engine,with Oban lifeboat pulling from astern,failed because of strong winds blowing the ship towards the shore.
High tide was not due until around midnight but it was hoped to tow the vessel off around 10.30pm.
