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!

We stopped during our tour of scotland as my son is interested in anything to do with the war. It was a little pricey but once inside they had made each room as real to life as possible. We were also allowed to take our dog in as long as they like cats which i was very surprised at. It... More

Visited the secret bunker recently having seen signs for it along the road and thought it would be a good place to go for an afternoon. Plenty of parking at the site, staff very efficient and informative about the site. We were quite taken aback at the £12 per adult entry fee and actually discussed not going in but seeing... More

This was an interesting visit. It was quite strange walking down the long corridor into the ground! We were able to view 2 levels, although I believe there is at least a third! A little bit of history, that thankfully, was never actually needed!

Interesting place to visit. Although a word of caution for families with young children. The film presentation in the Cinema is not suited to young children and to be fair to the staff do worn you about this when you buy your ticket. All in all well worth a visit.

Not sure what to expect but enjoyed our visit. The set up makes you feel like it could still be operational, new signage blends in with the original. I felt you could really get a feel for the place and the film playing in the cinema room was very sobering and reminded you why the bunker exists. The room set... More

Well it may not be quite so secret as it once was but Scotland's Secret Bunker is a must visit. An intriguing museum which evoked memories of the cold war and just how close we came to nuclear extinction. It is suitable for families but may be of specific interest to those of us who lived through the cold war... More

Really eye opening. Spent roughly 2hrs there but could have easily stayed longer. Found the experience really interesting, didn't stay for the whole of the cinema film but this was particularly interesting (not suitable for children though)
