  • WE DON’T

    Bring your favourite wine and fizz and enjoy your day the way you want it.

    We don't believe in charging you extra for wines and fizz you've already bought, so you don't need to worry about any extra corkage charges coming from us.


    The freedom of choice is something we advocate strongly here at Kinkell Byre.

    You shouldn't have to sacrifice your dream caterer to get your dream venue - so we don't tell you who to use. The only people we ask that you use are our lighting and bar supplier. If you are looking for ideas, we have a list of suggested event suppliers who have worked with Kinkell Byre in the past.

    Years as a Venue

Set on the coast 2 miles from St Andrews, Scotland, Kinkell has hosted a wide variety of events for from 40 to 2000 guests. The capacity seated for dinner is up to 450 and for a ball 1200 and there are areas suitable for marquees to increase capacity to 2000. The average size of weddings is around 120 and for this number is very comfortable with a separate area for each part of the day.

A unique wedding barn venue, Kinkell Byre is the former cow shed on Kinkell Farm, which runs down to the sea and at one time extended to the town. The original parts of the barns were started in the mid 1700’s with stone from the ruins of Kinkell Castle which stood on the coast near what is now the Castle Course Clubhouse.
