Where Is Shetland Filmed?

October 22, 2023

Since Shetland began in 2013, the crime drama series based on Ann Cleeves’ books has captured the hearts of viewers and critics alike. Its gripping plots and stunning scenery have enthralled audiences around the world.

Whether you’re an avid fan of Shetland or are just starting to watch the hit show, we’ve put together a guide to all of the iconic filming locations featured in the series. From the Shetland Times revealing the home of Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez, to Shetland’s own wildlife photographer recounting her encounter with one of the main characters, we have all the information you need.

Shetland is a great place for shooting films, with the local council providing a free, confidential and supportive service for anyone looking to bring their production to the Shetland Islands. They can help with locations, studio space and accommodation, as well as recommending local experts.

Filming for Shetland has taken place in a number of locations across the Shetland Islands, with some scenes also shot in mainland Scotland. Douglas Henshall has revealed that his character’s house is located in Kilbarchan, Renfrewshire and the interior of a couple of crofts are filmed at Irvine Beach on the west coast of Ayrshire.

Shetland’s proximity to Norway has also seen some of the landscape and exterior shots filmed in Norway. According to the Shetland Times, some scenes were filmed in Bergen and Vaksdal during the series four shoot.
