Outdoor Experiences

Our great outdoors

Expand your mind and meet fellow outdoor enthusiasts. 

We have a whole plethora of outdoor experiences to enjoy within our own 10 acres, and our Guest Services Team are on hand to give you the lowdown on everything worth experiencing in North East Fife.

Adventure everywhere

Explore our grounds

Staying put doesn't mean staying in at Rufflets - we have large and varied gardens and grounds to explore during your stay. Stretch your legs after breakfast with a stroll to the Kitchen Garden to see what's on the menu for dinner, or take four-legged friends down to the lower gardens to bound after their favourite ball.

Beach days

If a full day of fresh air and activity is calling you, miles of unspoiled coastline, beautiful beaches, forests and open countryside make our small county a compact escape.  There are abundant opportunities to make the most of Fife’s dry sunny climate and enjoy walking, cycling, golf and water sports during your visit.

Take a hike

For something refreshing but unhurried, the Fife Coastal Path offers unrivalled views of the North East Fife and East Neuk coastline. The path can be walked in a variety of shorter sections so you can decide how far you want to roam, and the routes take in lots of beautiful inlets which offer exciting beach-combing opportunities for children.

Get on your bike

If two wheels is your preference, look no further than Rufflets Bicycle Hire service.  A full day hire of one of our beautiful Marin bikes is just £20.00, and if you venture into St Andrews to take in the sights, you can breathe a sigh of relief as you park effortlessly and free of charge. North East Fife and the East Neuk benefit from some wonderful parts of the National Cycle Network so you can really stretch your legs if you want to cover more miles and feel the wind in your hair.
