The hotel is owned and managed by the Solley family; who have welcomed guests at Pitbauchlie since 1970.
What was once a 4 bedroom country house has now 53 en suite bedrooms, bars, restaurants and function facilities.
The name Pitbauchlie, like many of Fife’s place names is of Celtic origin. The "pett" which translates to "estate farm" occurs more often in the Dunfermline area, that any other area in Scotland. Thus, Pitbauchlie translates to " …estate of the keeper of the bachall or crozier."
