Skelmorlie ROC Post Museum, North Ayrshire
Fifteen feet below the ground, a close-knit team of dedicated and highly trained volunteers waited for the message they hoped would never come. Throughout the Cold War, the underground monitoring post of the Royal Observer Corps at Skelmorlie played an important role as part of the United Kingdom Warning and Monitoring Organisation.
The Chief Observer and other former members of the Corps are on hand to provide demonstrations of the variety of equipment inside the post, the procedures that had to be followed and describe what would have happened if the post had received an "Attack Warning Red" alert indicating that nuclear war had begun.

Scotland’s Secret Bunker is located at Troywood nr. Anstruther in Fife, close to the key enemy targets of the Royal Navy's Rosyth dockyard and the fighter aircraft of RAF Leuchars. The site is hidden beneath an innocent Scottish Farmhouse and a tunnel leads to main bunker complex. The site offers the visitor the ability to discover the world of the Government Cold War machine and offer the opportunity to discover how they would have survived, and the general population generally wouldn’t.
