Several crew members of a cruise liner anchored in the Firth of Forth have contracted coronavirus.
Eight staff on the Fred. Oslen Cruise Lines vessel Black Watch have tested positive and results are awaited for a further six.
It is understood their treatment is being managed on board, with no plans for anyone to disembark.
The ship is one of four Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines vessels anchored in the Forth while sailings are suspended.
Its sister vessel, Braemar, also in the Forth, hit the headlines last month when it became stranded in the Caribbean with five people on board tested positive.
A company spokeswoman said: “Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines can confirm that a number of crew members aboard its ship Black Watch have tested positive for Covid-19 coronavirus.
“Eight crew members have tested positive, and we are awaiting the results for six others.”
The spokeswoman said the ship was operating under the current public health guidance.
“Each crew member is occupying their own cabin, each with a balcony,” she said.
“There are no social gatherings on board. Crew are only leaving their cabins to perform essential duties, which includes bridge watch, engine watch and the preparation of food.
“Those who have received a positive diagnosis or who are feeling unwell are not undertaking any duties.”
Forth Ports said it was providing safe anchorage in the River Forth for the four liners while they were out of operation.
A spokeswoman said: “As the statutory river authority we have instructed that the vessel remains at the anchorage until the appropriate period of self-isolation is complete.
“The ship’s owners Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines are taking care of the welfare of the crew on board.”
Fife Council is also understood to be monitoring the situation.
When Fred Oslen confirmed its ships were anchoring in the Forth, it said each would retain a small team on board for essential operations.
