PARTS of Inverclyde doubled for Shetland as filming for a major new crime drama got underway.
A film crew were in the area for a day this week using a quiet country road near Loch Thom and a school in Port Glasgow.
They were working on the two-part BBC drama Shetland which stars Scots actor Douglas Henshall as detective Jimmy Perez from the series of books by award-winning crime writer Ann Cleeves.
The BBC confirmed that two locations were used ahead of filming taking place in Shetland in July.
The production team were at the old Largs Road near Greenock on Tuesday filming internal shots of a character driving with the countryside in the background doubling for Shetland.
Lilybank School was also renamed Lerwick School for some footage.
Other mainland locations will be used in Irvine, Barrhead and Dalry.
