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!

I had been meaning to visit this for years. Fascinating to see where the powers that be would have hidden had the bomb dropped. I rather expected the command rooms and the like, obviously reminiscent of the Cabinet War Rooms in London. I was astonished...More

This was a great day out, definitely wasn't expecting it to be such an elaborate place complete with war rooms and such, thought maybe it would just be big enough to sustain a medium size group of people. Was very interesting to wander around and...More

Somewhere we have wanted to visit for a while we weren't disappointed. 3 to 4 hours I would allow, lots of information some graphic on the horror of nuclear weapons and war. Certainly very thought provoking, a marvel of engineering and still has a great...More

Ideal for a wet days as all underground, two levels underground. 15mins from St Andrews on country road, well hidden but signposts. We were there over an hour and visited the underground bunker cafe. It was like they had all just left yesterday, very James...More

This step back in time exceeded all expectations. The place gives the impression that the military personnel had just left. About 30 metres underground with two levels one on top of the other and each about the size of a football pitch. Not at all...More

We pitched up here one rainy day, with nothing else to do... A wonderful insight into the cold war, the effects of nuclear war - and the prospect of what might lie ahead. The exhibitions are well presented and informative. Be aware that the 45...More

A fascinating piece of history and really like stepping back in time. Well worth the visit. Audio guide is worth it too.

A bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit especially if exploring the Fife Coastal route. Only 4 miles inland from Anstruther it is well signposted. On approach along the single track road from the main road is what would pass as a...More
