A cold war nuclear bunker in the remote Scottish countryside is on the market for just £20,000. John Letham is selling the bunker, which was built in 1962, in it's original condition after plans to renovate it fell through. The 54-year-old bought the bunker in Traquair, Scottish Borders, 'on a whim' in 2003 and had hoped to possibly convert it into a holiday home. But after moving to the Philippines, Mr Letham (inset), who is an art and antique dealer, decided to sell the underground relic and the 2,500 square feet of land surrounding it. During the Cold War the corps was responsible for recording the radioactive fallout in the event of a nuclear blast. To give members protection underground bunkers were constructed. Following the end of the Cold War, the nuclear threat diminished and the bunkers became redundant. The bunker, surrounded by open farmland, can only be accessed by climbing down a steel ladder (centre) in the access shaft. The site comprises of two rooms - the main room which was the communication centre, sleeping and living area (left), and the toilet.
