The Original Barn Venue

Kinkell Byre, St Andrews

Kinkell Byre, stunningly located on the coast just outside St Andrews, allows you to create your perfect event. We offer you exclusive hire of a converted barn, which is full of character and rustic charm for a beautiful wedding or a party. There is plenty of room inside and outside with spectacular sea views. We also have a wide range of activities available for corporate activity days.

Kinkell Byre gives you the chance to create your own event with as much freedom as possible. The venue is a blank canvas retaining many original features. Our experienced team will give you as much or as little help and advice as you want. This allows you to really put your personal touch on your truly unique event.

A bit about us – Kinkell Byre – Weddings & Cabins

Kinkell Byre, built in the 1700s, a winter home for the cattle of Kinkell Farm, which once stretched to St Andrews. The cattle huddled in the main dining room, their food was stored in the long shed (where the bar is) and the tattie shed at end of the dining area housed the dairy as well as tatties. Some of the stone used to build the byre came from the ruins of Kinkell Castle, which stood near here, down by the sea.

Now part of our logo, Archie, the highland bullock, who lived to the ripe old age of 18, now watches over the entrance to the Byre.

The Fyfe family have farmed at Kinkell since 1950 and since 2003, Kinkell Byre has hosted a wide range of events, weddings, student balls, corporate dinners, and activity days. The experience gained in this time gives the team at Kinkell the ability to ensure our customers realise their vision for their perfect event.
