ITV Shetland and Silverprint Pictures are now nearing the end of the local shoot for series nine of Shetland, with filming being completed on the islands this Friday (28 June).


The final two days of filming via a larger film ‘unit’ will take place at Bridge End in Burra on the above dates.

Please note there will be no road traffic restrictions at this location, but equally note that the large filming support ‘unit’ will be located in the parking area of the Bridge End Outdoor Centre throughout that time.

As such the parking area around the centre itself will be closed to all forms of traffic (including caravans and camper vans) from the evening of Wednesday 26 June until lunchtime on Saturday 29 June, although access to the centre itself will remain open during this time as is the case for the nearby marina.

Please also note there will, as a result of this, be an increase in traffic in the surrounding area – including larger truck movements – and throughout the island in general.

Please be aware of this and drive with caution in the area. The team’s own drivers have been advised to do likewise of course.


Following the cancellation of the planned filming at the Trondra bridge and the associated road traffic restrictions on Wednesday 26 June, this has now been re-scheduled for Friday 28 June from 9.45am until 11am.

Traffic restrictions will amount to a series of short ‘stop/go’ measures in the area of the bridge – amounting to no more than a few minutes hold/delay on each occasion – to ensure the security and safety of the film crew and other general road users too.

A drone will also be in operation during this time.

As always there will be no delay for any emergency vehicles that may require access.

ITV Shetland sincerely apologise in advance for any slight delay or other inconvenience this may cause but thank everyone for their patience and co-operation on this occasion and indeed throughout the whole shoot for series nine of Shetland during April and June 2024. Your support is hugely appreciated.

For any queries or issues relating to the above please contact Davie Gardner on 07867 654 509.
