Underneath an unassuming farmhouse is Scotland's Secret Bunker, where the government planned to keep the country going in the event of a nuclear war. Built in secrecy during the 1950s, the bunker was removed from the United Kingdom’s “Official Secrets” list in 1993. Today, you are welcome to walk 30.5 m (100 ft) underground through the hermetically sealed, 2.72 metric ton (3 ton) blast proof doors and into fully preserved Cold War center. Sit down to a full menu or tea service in the original canteen or mess hall. Parties of 10 or more enjoy special discounts.

Scotland's Secret Bunker reviews
Thourghly enjoyed, good history lesson. Well placed signs for covid but sure we were the only people present in the bunker at the time. Only reason 4 stars as felt quite pricey but have never been... more »
Great place to visit if you have an interest in the history of the cold war. Video slightly harrowing ... but the lady at reception did warn us as we had children. The audio guide was informative. more »
So much information and completely fascinating. Staff really helpful too. Understandably couldn't bring dog in but the staff let me park in a shaded spot and kept an eye on my car out of the window for me as I had left the windows down. They didn't have to go the extra mile but offered and were really kind. This is my third visit and I'll be back next year as I always find something I've missed.
Have been trying to go here for years and only.just got the chance. Was very pleased with the bunker overall, I think the price reflects the quality of the exhibit and is a stark reminder of the cold war era. Overall very good and informative. Cafe could do with a bit of an update though.
