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!

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.

If you're a military history buff and in the area, don't miss this hidden gem. Plan to take time. There is a lot of content here worth covering. I personally liked the fact that there was a distinctly anti-war flavour to the place.

We kept seeing signs for this attraction and decided to visit. The place is like stepping back in time, beautifully kept. The information was interesting on the audios you take round. We had one of these bunkers near us in Seaham, which was stripped. I...More

Too expensive at £12 + £2 for information guide.The guide book at £5 was even worse with virtually nothing extra in it and very few pages.Some of the displays had been brought from elsewhere to increase the exhibits.Well set out but frightening as it illustrates...More

My nephew and his disabled partner treated us - two senior citizens - to this. £46 entrance fee in total! I was embarrassed by the whole debacle. It was advertised as catering for disabled - but failed to say that to get to a wheelchair...More
