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!

To look back at what was going on as we got on with our day to day lives was facinating. Learning about the harrowing experiences if there was a neucular explosion was heart wrenching and educational. The movie they show in the cinema, where we...More

We arrived at the secret bunker and our party ranged from aged 69 to age 3. Reasonably priced entry for the attraction and plenty of parking. Small gift shop and cafe on site but cafe quite expensive! The secret bunker itself was quite amazing, with...More
