Return to Welcome to Fife Secret Bunker

Secret Bunker

From the outside the Secret Bunker is a rather ordinary looking building, but inside and below ground it hides a site that for over 40 years after the end of World War Two was one of the most sensitive and, as the name implies, secret, in Scotland. 

The Bunker has had a number of uses over the years, starting as an RAF radar station just after WWII, and being developed in the 1970s to be the main seat of government in Scotland in the event of a nuclear conflict. The bunker remained ready for use in this role until 1992.

The Bunker lies 100 feet underground and is the size of two football pitches, one on top of the other.  It includes various rooms which look like they would have done when it was in operation including the nuclear command control centre - a large area in where everyone central to running what was left of the country would have tried to do so. 

Open 7 days a week, from 10am to last admission at 5pm.
