WREATHS were laid at the war memorial opposite Lerwick Town Hall earlier to mark Remembrance Sunday.
Lord Lieutenant Bobby Hunter, Beatrice Wishart MSP and council convener Andrea Manson led the ceremony.
A gun salute in the nearby playpark also formed part of the event.
There was also a wreath laid in Quarff, while there is a ceremony planned at the Shetland Bus memorial in Scalloway at 3pm.
Lerwick Town Hall has also been lit red in the evenings to support the Poppy Appeal.
There is also a striking remembrance display in the grounds of the Anderson High School in Lerwick featuring more than 1,000 knitted poppies.
