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!

Really enjoyed our visit to the Secret Bunker. Amazing to think that there was so much going on underground that the rest of the country knew little or nothing about. For those of us who remember those Cold War days and seeing the Protect and...More

We enjoyed two interesting hours here, and particularly enjoyed watching the old 'public information' films. To see the possible effects of nuclear war is a difficult watch, but necessary and never more relevant!

We visited on a Sunday and found the site very interesting, lots of great information and good that it has been preserved for all to see. The videos are a bit gory but the staff member advised us of this. Overall, good value for money

Makes you think with the current political "unrest". Intesting and confronting. Worth a visit is you are in the area

What a find. Very informative and interesting, could easily spend half a day with no problem. Certainly makes one think about the dangers of nuclear war.
