Ferry passengers were discovered hiding in the rear footwells of a car on the ferry from (Brodick) Arran to Ardrossan in south-west Scotland.
Passengers were also found hidden in vehicles on other Caledonian MacBrayne (CalMac) ferries, attempting to evade the ban on non-essential island travel.
Despite the Scottish Government lifting restrictions to allow families to visit eachother, Arran residents are still barred from visiting relatives on the mainland.
A group of golfers were discovered in a van on the crossing between Largs and Cumbrae.
In both instances, their attempts were thwarted with the stowaways reported to have been found by CalMac staff after attention was brought by other people.
They were prevented from travelling.

The Firth of Clyde route is the nearest to Ireland which can linked by travelling across the North Channel routes of Belfast-Cairnryan (Stena Line) and Larne-Cairnryan (P&O Ferries).
The island serving ferry was tracked to the route over the weekend while seasonal-only fleetmate Isle of Arran remains today in layover at nearby Troon.
