SCOTLAND'S SECRET BUNKER CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Good project for a rainy day!

Very interesting place to visit. Lots of different rooms with displays of how it looked during the cold war.  Handsets available with commentary of each room. Really enjoyed the visit.

Isobel Mitchell July 9, 2019

Definitely worth a visit

The Bunker is steeped in history and really is put together well now as a visitor attraction to learn of the history. Great insight into how the elite would have survived a nuclear fallout with most of the bunker remaining exactly as it was when first put together!

Craig Johnstone July 9, 2019

Completely fascinating

So much information and completely fascinating. Staff really helpful too.

This is my third visit and I'll be back next year as I always find something I've missed.
