The group say they have secured the entrances with lock-on equipment and the main entrance with XR Scotland's big purple boat, named Amal Gous after an activist killed in protests in Sudan.
XR said they plan to shut the building down to disrupt business and hold Shell to account for its role in the climate crisis.
Police said they were called to the scene at approximately 6:45am today. ■
