Paid for contentCrime drama filming moves to Vanlop and Mossy Hill

FILMING scenes for the forthcoming Shetland 9 crime drama will focus on the Vanlop area of Scousburgh over coming days.

ITV Shetland and Silverprint Pictures crew will be in the area between Monday (today) and Wednesday.

To allow filming to take place safely the upper section of the Vanlop road leading up to the top of Mossy Hill has been closed. Local access will be maintained at all times for residents in the area and for animal welfare.

This closure will be in force from 7am to 8pm each day.

Location manager Davie Gardner said: “Please note however that the closure points will remain manned at all times for reasons of access management.”

During this time the production team’s larger filming support unit will be located in the car park surrounding the Bigton Hall.

Gardner added: “Please be advised of increased traffic in this area and between the Bigton Hall and our location at Vanlop on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday this week and drive accordingly.

“Please also be aware that our technical support vehicles may be parked in areas around the Vanlop Road and our filming location there. Again, access will remain unaffected.

“ITV Shetland and Silverprint Pictures sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause but equally thank everyone for this co-operation with this.”

If further information is required, please call Davie Gardner on 07867 654 509 or e-mail
