CRIME drama cast and crew are back in the isles this week to record more scenes for series eight of Shetland.

Tomorrow (Wednesday), they will be at Bigton Farm and on the St Ninian’s Isle road.

The production’s support unit will be located at the Bigton Hall.

There will be partial road closures and traffic management in place from 7am to 8pm.

Location manager Davie Gardner said this is to “ensure the safety of our cast, crew and members of the public too of course”.

“Access will be maintained although a stop / go traffic control system … These ‘holds’ will only apply for a few minutes at a time on each occasion but we nevertheless apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

“Please note the beach itself will remain open as normal.”

Gardner also recommends that drivers be careful due to increases in traffic, including large vehicles in the area.

If you require further information please contact Andy ‘Mod’ Ross (Assistant Locations Manager) on 07963 713 446 or Lyall Gair (Assistant Locations Manager – Shetland) on 07786 653 859.
