I was on my usual walk when I spied some signs saying they were filming the tv series “Shetland” in my area.
So I thought I would walk on and see where they were filming.
There were lorries and lighting equipment surrounding an empty large house at Watsness about 2 miles down the road from where we live.
Watsness is a fabulous location. There is a beautiful view over the Shetland coastline to the island of Foula that lies 20 miles to the west in the Atlantic Ocean.
(I took this beautiful photo on one of my many walks, but not today)
But it looked like this today.
I turned around and walked home meeting my neighbour. We both said to each other “There’s been a murder” in our best TV-Scottish accents and laughed. According to the TV series “Shetland”, we live in a hotbed of murder and mystery. Real life seems sadly disappointing.
Later Daisy drove us to our vegetable packing job and en route, I mentioned I wanted to go to Watsness with my better camera to take some photos for the blog. The sea fog – haar – was coming and going. I expect that will play havoc with continuity.
I guess we will now have to watch “Shetland” to see where we live on the telly!
