Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014 via mobile

Wanted to go somewhere different for sons birthday and we chose this.

Glad we did as it was an excellent trip - the whole experience was worth it.

The entire concept was great and the bunker has some amazing rooms and it was fascinating.

Recommend a visit.

“down the cold-war rabbit hole”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

At ground level, the bunker is a victorian stone country house with gingerbread gables. Down the rectangular rabbit hole, we enter Fail Safe territory. Mannikins in starchy 1960's uniforms are writing fallout reports in ballpoint about the glowing cinders of Edinburgh.

The site is a private one, run by two brothers who bought the property and then scoured the UK for military surplus. It's not particularly militaristic, but it bring to life the time when the world had a military crack down the middle.

I remember the October morning when school was called off because of apocalypse. If you are of the same generation, this will be a walk down a strange memory lane; if not, it might get you started on thinking about the nearer shores of history.

Great day trip.

“history visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Definitely need the audio guide to get true feel of this great attraction, worth a visit to see what might have been, but luckily was never used. Good to see something we were never officially meant to see
