A NorthLink freight vessel ran aground in Aberdeen on Thursday.
The Arrow was coming to the harbour towards the end of her overnight sailing south from Lerwick.
Coastguard officials in Aberdeen told The Shetland Times she ran aground in the fairway channel at around 7.30am.
Harbour tugs were dispatched to assist the ferry, and another vessel on the scene also provided assistance.
The vessel is now alongside the harbour. An inspection is expected to be carried out before she will sail again.
Aberdeen Coastguard said there were no injuries as a result of the incident.
