The Baton route at Lerwick in the afternoon will begin from Holmsgarth Road at 4.28pm today and meander its way around Lerwick taking in Shetland Museum & Archives and Mareel.
The Baton will take a short voyage on local replica Viking long-ship Dim Riv to arrive at Victoria Pier around 5.30pm before heading along the Esplanade, around the South end of Lerwick and the Knab and back through the streets, to culminate in an Evening Celebration event at the Clickimin Athletics Track.
