Paid for contentShetland filming at Burra and Spiggie beach on Thursday

CAST and crew of the crime drama Shetland will be in East Burra as well as Spiggie beach tomorrow (Thursday).

The access road to the beach at Spiggie, also known as Scousburgh Sands, will be closed from 4pm until 10pm.

Shooting will also take place in Burra on the same day.

Location manager Davie Gardner said: “We will be filming at a property in Meadows Road, Houss, East Burra – and possibly on the road itself between the hours detailed above.

“For this purpose we have requested, and been granted, a temporary road closure order to ensure the safety of our cast, crew and members of the public too of course.”

A stop/go traffic control system will be in place from 10am to 11pm.

“These ‘holds’ will only apply for a few minutes at a time on each occasion while actual filming takes place, but nevertheless we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause,” Gardner said.

The production’s support unit will be located at the Scalloway Harbour for this period.

Drivers should expect an increase in traffic and large vehicles in the area.

For 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.
