Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web
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.
