Scotlandís best kept secret for over 40 years, Hidden beneath an innocent Scottish Farmhouse, a tunnel leads to,
Scotlandís Secret Bunker. 24,000 square feet of Secret accommodation. The size of two football pitches, one on top of another, on two levels 100 feet underground.

Had there been a Nuclear War, this is where Scotland, would have been Governed, from within.

Discover the twilight world of the Government Cold War.

Take the opportunity to discover how they would have survived, and you wouldnít !!!Ö






Yes folks were doing something a little different for this run, going in search of the Secret Bunker. Due to the secret location we have to ensure that no KGB agents follow us, therefore we'll have to wind our way there along many winding back roads to avoid the surveillance cameras.



The plan is to meet up at a secret location in Stirling and drive to the bunker where we will have around 2-3 hours to look around. As no formal lunch is planned we intend to dine in the NAFI canteen, click here for the menu, alternatively you could bring your own ration pack with you. Following the visit we will again sneak out on the back roads finally ending the run in South Queensferry. We may also pop into the Dakota hotel bar to debrief those lucky enough to survive.

Nice run,good to meet up with Central members again.Liked the" Secret Bunker" But due to no advice from the receptionist most of it will remain just that a "secret" The internal steps were too steep for both Jen and I, so it was only the first floor and the Naffi for a roll and a cuppa.Still we enjoyed the run.many thanks to the organisers.
