1960s nuclear war bunker open to public

The bunker, located in the Cabrach hills of Moray, is some 20ft below ground and is the size of a small caravan https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-north-east-orkney-shetland-45220025.

Part of a network of hundreds of sites staffed by volunteers of the Royal Observer Corps during the Cold War, it was actually built not to shelter people but to monitor any fallout as the result of a nuclear attack.
