Family owned and managed since the 1950’s, Rufflets has been awarded AA Scottish Hotel of the Year 2015-2016, which makes sense given its beautiful grounds and gardens, 24 luxurious bedrooms, excellent cuisine combined with a laid back and relaxed atmosphere. The Terrace Restaurant offers the very best of modern Scottish cuisine made with local ingredients such as fresh seafood from the East Neuk of Fife as well as local beef and lamb, enhanced by our home-grown vegetables, fruits and herbs. The beaches, restaurants, historic buildings and golf courses in the centre of town are all no more than 5 minutes by car. All in all, a great place for an active or relaxing break filled with Scottish charm.
