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!

Scotland's Secret Bunker is so secret, it's hard to find! It was a very good history lesson of the Cold War.

Visited Scotland's Secret Bunker today and it was brilliant. Used an audio guide for information and there was plenty to see in this nuclear bunker from the 50s. Well worth a visit.
