Ghostly Shadow Figure Photographed Inside Abandoned Bunker In Fife, Scotland


Something strange is lurking inside abandoned bunkers in Fife, Scotland, and it’s been captured on camera. The photos in question were reportedly taken inside a secret Scottish Bunker somewhere in Fife, and shows what looks an awful lot like the shadow figure of a man standing at the end of a long hallway. Stranger still, the bunker can only be reached via a long, winding hallway that leads visitors down 100 feet under the earth.

The mysterious observer wasn’t the only bizarre photo in group, either. Another picture, snapped inside what looks to be an office, shows a large black mass manifesting directly in front of the camera, only to disappear completely in the next photo.



The pictures were taken by Matthew Pattinson, who claims to have seen no one present when either of the photos were taken, saying it was just he and his friend wandering the entire building. According to Pattinson, the strange activity seems to have followed him home since his visit, resulting in some strange activity manifesting in his own home.


“I only remember taking the first photo,”Pattinson explained to the Evening Telegraph. “It’s like my phone took the other one itself and it even lightened it. You can make out what looks like the sideways view of someone’s head and a nose. I’m getting chills just talking about it.”


Other visitors have experienced feelings of sickness while touring the bunker, which psychics have attributed to a dark entity that spends its time lurking in the hallways of the abandoned complex.

    Wait, I’m confused. The abandoned building/bunker has still has power? And file cabinets and telephones? Is it running on some sort of generator?

    Regarding the shadows, I can’t help but think of a shadow government in a literal sense. It’s almost like a comedy sketch, with disgruntled shadows running around offices filled with bureaucratic signs like “classified waste only” and “routing.” Wouldn’t all waste in a secret bunker be classified? What gets routed in a bunker, and where? Trying not to laugh, but at the same time, these images vibe of dark office comedy.

      Yes, I thought the same thing. Power wise that is. For an abandoned place, it sure looks like a ghostly maid still cleans it!

      i think they’ve turned it into a kind of underground bunker museum, which is the reason for the power, phones and so on.

        You are right – I googled & it is a museum. They have a website, cafe, newsletter, road signs, mugs, etc. Explains the lights and preserved office scene. Not so secret secret bunker.

    yeah it’s really fun, like a comedy sketch, until you find yourself at the end of the tunnel

      End of the secret tunnel is the new glass ceiling?

    is he ABSOLUTELY SURE no one else was there, as I’m sure the figure at the end on the tunnel is causing their own shadows…?? as i didn’t realize spirits could do this, well either that or their is more than one figure standing down there.

    There is a major problem with this story. It isnt the fact that there is Power that is still on in this “Abandoned bunker”. It isnt even the Freaky figure in the tunnel, or black shadow fog. It has to do with the entire office. In movie sets,or television programs, its common to place oversized lettering on documents or forms to add slight credibility to an environment. Remember, this area (A Bunker) is designed for extremely specific employees that know their jobs, and how to do them. Even in todays operating offices there are no signs to delegate where work goes. Not only that, but this is an abandoned “Bunker” yet there is no dust,clutter,or aged documents that show crinckled edges from moisture or time.

    Most likely part of a marketing campaign to attract visitors and also generate business for The Scottish Ghost Nights group. They charge for their ghostly investigation nights. The corridor image/story is featured in the ‘Lets Spread Some News’ section of a marketing agencies website. Volta provide publicity to local businesses through different kinds of marketing campaigns. Wouldn’t it be great if one of their campaigns went viral. 😉
    Cunningly Good!

      Nailed it.

      It would be cool enough to explore on its own (haunted or not), but I’m sure they could generate more cash by enticing ghost hunting groups. Who knows, maybe there are some Pokestops within…you could market to PokemonGo players as well.

      Kind of sad that historical venues have to lure people in with ghosts and Pokestops, but at least those added revenues/foot traffic keep these places open.
