Two ships ran aground Tuesday off the west coast of Scotland, according to Herald Scotland.

The first vessel, the 87-meter passenger cruise vessel Serenissima, was lodged on sand and gravel at a spot known as the Corran Ledge in Oban Bay Tuesday night as it made its way from Ireland to the port of Oban, Herald Scotland reported. Aboard the ship were 61 passengers and 51 crew members.

With help from the ship’s crew and the Oban RNLI lifeboat team, Serenissima was refloated and inspected without any damage or pollution.

A second ship, the Vos Protector, a 47-meter rescue/salvage ship, also ran aground in Fraserburgh Harbor northeast of Scotland. Aberdeen Coastguard and a Fraserburgh lifeboat towed the boat back to the harbor.

No injuries have been reported in either incident.
