TV presenter Dougie Vipond and celebrity chef Nick Nairn have made a trip to Shetland to film for BBC show Landward.
The pair are meeting with various folk from the local farming, food and aquaculture sectors.
The episode will go out on the BBC Scotland channel on 2 June.
It is set to feature Kirsty and Aimee Budge from Bigton Farm.
Vipond – who also drums with Deacon Blue – and Nairn have met Marvin Thomason and Gordon Johnson to learn more about mussel harvesting in Basta Voe.
Also on the agenda is hanging out with Jakob Eunson from Uradale Farm – and learning more about sassermaet.
The episode is also set to feature salted cod business owner David Polson, while it will see the pair cook together on the sand at St Ninian’s.
Meanwhile Nairn said on Twitter that he had “one of the best lobsters I’ve tasted” while eating at No.88 in Lerwick.
