Video guide to the isles goes viral
A lighthearted video showcasing an A-Z guide to Shetland has proved to be an internet hit on YouTube.
The 11-minute production offers a humorous but factual guide to life in the isles.
It has already been viewed by almost 15,200 people across – in the space of just two days.
The production went live on the YouTube channel run by 60 North TV on Tuesday.
Commissioned by Promote Shetland – which owns and operates 60 North TV – and produced by local company DJ Film and Sound, the film stars musician and arts worker Bryan Peterson, who acts as an unconventional guide to his native islands.
The film starts off with A for Airport and concludes with Z for Zetland. Highlights include K for knitwear, P for ponies and U for Unst – which, the film says, plays host to Britain’s “most northerly dog”.
Culinary delights such as reestit mutton and Da Lounge feature, along with Mareel.
“It is aimed primarily at people who might be thinking of moving to Shetland,” said Andy Steven of Promote Shetland.
“The idea was to both provide factual information and a real flavour of what Shetland is like, communicated with some of the islands’ native humour.”
