In October 1920, the Evening Telegraph reported under the headline "Alarming Fire at Lundin Links Hotel", that a fire originating in the kitchen on an upper floor had rapidly spread to the roof - ultimately causing £700 worth of damage. The Buckhaven Fire Brigade had attended, cutting the roof to avoid flames spreading to other parts of the building and using a "copious supply of water" to bring the fire under control. Manager at the time, Tom Harris, had received high praise for his efforts to fight the outbreak up until the arrival of the fire service.
Whatever the future holds for the building, the Lundin Links Hotel will hold many memories for locals and visitors alike. I recall Hogmanay dinner dances, birthday parties and family meals. I also remember the excitement when the TV programme 'Tutti Frutti' was filming in the hotel in the 1980s, the cast of which included the actors Robbie Coltrane and Emma Thompson.
