The Kinkell Team

Find out a little bit about our dedicated team.

Sandy Fyfe

Sandy Fyfe moved to Kinkell when it was still a working farm back in 1993.

In 2005, after trying his hand at everything from cattle and pheasant farming to off-road driving and highland games, Sandy settled on the idea of converting one of the largest old farm steadings in Fife into a wedding and events venue.

The first step was putting a dancefloor into the old Byre (cattle shed) and, since then, Sandy has gradually developed the venue, adding a toilet block, repairing rooves, installing glass doors to create one of the most impressive and versatile barn venues in Scotland.

Since 2005, Sandy has grown the corporate, weddings and student events business and Kinkell now has over 80 events and corporate activities every year. Sandy still plays a critical role overseeing events, ensuring that everyone’s day runs smoothly.

Rory Fyfe

Rory Fyfe moved to Kinkell with his parents at the age of 14.

He worked on the pheasant farm and remembers Kinkell Byre when it was full of calving cows rather than partying wedding guests.

Rory has been involved in the events business from afar since 2011, when he moved to Qatar, helping out with admin and marketing.

He has recently returned from working overseas to help run events at Kinkell Byre.

Brian Scott

Brian Scott has worked at Kinkell for over 20 years, initially as the leading member of the team that ran the pheasant farm, then helping out with all kinds of corporate activities from highland games to clay pigeon shooting, quad biking and off-road driving.

In 2012, Brian started up a new bar business, Event Bars, which does a superb job of making sure the bars run smoothly at Kinkell events.

Brian also continues to work at Kinkell as the farm manager and helps look after the venue.

Sophie Simpson

Sophie is our Byre Co-ordinator who started at Kinkell back in April 2019 after graduating with a degree in Events Management.

Sophie works at almost all events at Kinkell to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Working alongside the team, Sophie has picked up more roles within admin & marketing side of events and is responsible for Kinkell’s social media
