Scotland's Secret Bunker

Hewn from the pleasant agricultural land of the Fife, the dark rooms and corridors of this secret place recall the menacing era of the Cold War. The bunker was part o a line of surveillance posts built on the eastern coast of the British Isles before becoming an atomic bomb shelter. As a regional headquarters of the government, it was intended to run the country after an atomic holocaust. The Soviet menace having disappeared, it was opened to the public in 1994.
