FILMING for the Shetland crime drama is moving to Hillswick tomorrow (Friday).
Between 7am to around 1pm – although times may vary – an approved road closure in front of the wildlife sanctuary will be in place.
The alternative route around the back of the sanctuary will be in operation, and the shop will still be accessible.
People are asked to drive with caution as a number of technical support vehicles will be parked in the immediate area.
The production team says it has been granted official permission from the fire service for parking around the local fire station on the provision that the door to the building remains clear of obstructions at all times.
In the event of an emergency call during the filming, parking space will be made available for fire crew members.
Later on that day, from around 2pm to 8pm (although times may vary), the filming unit will move to shoot scenes at Roenip croft off the B9078 Hillswick to Eshaness road.
“Although the croft itself is located well off the main road, our fleet of technical support vehicles will be parked (by necessity) along the carriageway of the road in the immediate area of the location,” Shetland location manager Davie Gardner said.
“To operate this measure safely we have requested – and been granted – an official stop/go traffic control restriction in the area.
“Traffic will however be held no longer than necessary – no longer than a few minutes on each occasion. Apologies for any inconvenience or disturbance any of the above may cause and sincere thanks in advance re your co-operation with all this.”
Anyone with any questions is asked to contact:
