BARNTON nuclear bunker & military complex.

Discover the fascinating history of Edinburgh's best kept secret...

Our mission is to restore the historic 1940’s RAF and Cold War era Nuclear Bunker into a fully operational visitor attraction, with the intention to open the doors to guided hard-hat tours. The Barnton Bunker Restoration Project has seen the bunker’s ‘shell’ entirely stripped in order to authentically reinstate it to how it once was and turn the bunker into a visitor attraction and meeting/conference facility.  

Come and visit Barnton Bunker and witness this amazing restoration project for yourself on one our our hard hat tours.  Advance booking is available at
