Went up to St. Andrews on a course with work, and thought how rude it would be not to pay a visit to the popular Scottish tourist attraction at Anstruther............................

(courtesy of Wikpedia)
Following the end of the Cold War, one of Anstruther's best kept secrets has become a major tourist attraction. A secret nuclear bunker, built in 1951 and operational until 1993, located near the village and beneath what during its operational lifetime was an ordinary looking domestic dwelling, has been renovated and is now open to the public as a museum.[2] The bunker was a subsidiary Regional Seat of Government in time of Nuclear emergency and would have been occupied by UK Armed Forces, UKWMO, Royal Observer Corps, and other Civil Service personnel.

Not going to bore you all with a trip report or anything, just going to fire up a few random photos without tags as I'm sure you all know what its all about!!!!!!
Incidently I visited here on my own, but would highly recommend a visit to anyone interested in anything military or cold war related....

Great looking place! I hate the bloody mannequins though, they look tacky, Ernie you should get yourself a job up there, you'd be able to wear your uniform and everything! :D
