Scotland's best kept secret.... Until now! Hidden beneath an innocent Scottish farmhouse lies Scotland's Secret Bunker. A 450 foot tunnel leads you to the blast proof doors which defend 24,000 square feet of secret accommodation which was built to help safeguard Scotland during the Cold War in the event of a nuclear attack. The Secret Bunker lies 100 feet underground and is the size of two football pitches, one on top of the other so there is plenty of exploring to do! Come and discover how Scotland would have been governed from the depths of Fife and how they would have survived a nuclear attack from the most deadly bombs!

I have seen the sign for here multiple times when visiting the area and always wanted to visit. We managed to get there this weekend and it was Fantastic. We spent a good 2-3 hours here, and found everything really interesting.

A good couple of hours will spent looking into the life and times of the men and women who worked in the bunker during the cold War.

Extremely well preserved and a fascinating insight into the whole story and implications of nuclear attack. More to it than I expected, there is a mix of rooms that have been left as they were and others that contain equipment and artefacts taken from other...More

Managed to visit after years of good intentions. We knew a little about it but had no idea how big it was. We were amazed. There is a lot to see and the recordings in some rooms are very atmospheric. It could be a much...More
