FILMING for the Shetland TV series will take place at a residential roadside property adjacent to the B9075 in Catfirth, South Nesting on Friday (4 June) and Sunday (6 June).
The filming will take place between 7am and 7pm each day, with a day off on Saturday.
The production team is advising that during this time – primarily for the safety of the crew and motorists in the area too – permission has been granted to operate a temporary stop/go traffic control system approximately 400 metres west of the Skellister Stores.
“Traffic will, however, only be held for a few minutes at a time in the area – maximum 10 mins at any one time,” Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said.
“Our main unit base (vehicle support unit) will, throughout this time, also be located nearby the actual filming location, primarily at the old Catfirth airbase.
“This unit comprises a variety of vehicles – including large articulated units, trucks, vans, cars etc – so please be aware of these – and inevitably increased general traffic too – particularly in the area of the location itself – and of them possibly emerging from side roads in the surrounding area too.
“You co-operation, caution and patience will be hugely appreciated and sincere apologies for any inconvenience any of this may cause during the short period of time we will be in the area.”
Filming is due to take place at the Shetland Museum and Archives in Lerwick this week as well as Commercial Street.
