Floor Plan

Kinkell Byre has 4 areas that can be used to suit your event. The Stables are generally used for catering and storage.

Below we have explained what each area is typically used for and the dimensions of each area. This should not be taken as a set format you are of course free to decide exactly how you would like to use the space.

Dance Floor
(Approx. 31 m x 14 m (434 m²) Approx. 4,500 sq. ft)

This wooden floor area, for most events provides plenty of space for tables, chairs and dancing without any need for re-setting. The space allows for flexibility to choose table sizes shapes and layouts to suit your theme/decor.

Tattie Shed
(Approx 14.5 m x 10.5 m (152.5 m2 ) 1,600 sq ft)

This area is the most popular for wedding ceremonies using the same chairs as for dining, and again with flexibility as to layout seating around 200. Alternatively it can be used as a second area for tables & chairs seating around 150 which combined with the Dance Floor allows room for a total of 350-450 depending on required dance floor area.

Another option may be to use this area to set out a buffet.

Long Shed
(Approx 41 m x 5.5 m (225.5 m2 ) 2,400 sq ft)

Mainly used for the drinks reception and bar – the curtains between this area and the Dance Floor being kept closed often before dining and then being opened to give the impression that the Dance Floor and Long Shed are all one.

Ian’s Shed
(Approx. 23.5 m x 6 m (141 m2 ) 1500 sq ft)

Often used as an entrance area, but can also be used as a ceremony area for up to 130. Also additional reception space for serving drinks on arrival. Good indoor space for photographs if needed.

This area is is typically used by the Catering team.

It brings us so much joy to be sharing pictures of our first wedding in months.

Like many of our couples, Covid shattered Rae and Kyle's wedding plans but they were determined to make the most of what they could do on their original date and postponed their reception until next year.

On Saturday they had a small ceremony in the Kinkell Byre Orchard with close family and it was breathtakingly beautiful.

We were very pleased to see Scotland moving ahead into Phase 2 this week and that does mean that small weddings can go ahead outside for 8 or less guests from the 29th June. If anyone doesn't want to wait to get married, we would be very happy to help. We have a fantastic outdoor spot with great views (see pic) and would be happy to put together a wee package for the provision of cake, drink etc. Here is an excellent article with more details about what is actually permitted: ...

We dont know how everyone is feeling right now in their seperate bubbles of isolation, but we continue to feel very sad for the couples that are still having to postpone their life plans. The hard thing is knowing when this is going to end, the outlook for large social gatherings is so uncertain, but we do see hope in scraps of news about new vaccines, contact tracing and ways to implement social distancing in hospitality settings. The first indications from the easing of lockdowns across Europe seems to be positive, we will know soon how the easing of the lockdown in England goes and hopefully Scotland will follow suit and we can go from there.
This must be so hard for all our couples who are waiting in this strange limbo to move forward with such an important event in their lives. We are here to help in any way we can. Please do let us know if there is anything you would like us to do or look into that would help you through these tough times.
We have said it before and we will say it again, we promise to do everything we can to make sure you all have an amazing time when the day finally comes.

Things are still strangely quiet here at Kinkell. It continues to be very sad trying to cope with the upheavel in eveyone's plans. The government strategy and guidelines published in the last couple of days do seem to be constructive, although we still need to wait to see what the Scottish government decides. In the meantime, we will think very hard in the coming months about ways we can make it possible for weddings to start happening again as soon as possible. While we are waiting for more updates, is there anything that you would like us to be sharing with you at the moment...? ...

Our resident swallows arrived back around two weeks ago, but being very small and fast it's taken a while to get a decent photo of them. These amazing little birds migrate around 7,000 miles across the Sahara from South Africa every year to nest and breed in the Byre and around the farm over the summer. It always puts a smile on the face to see them coming back. Wishing everyone the best in these challenging times.

With the Byre under lockdown we have had more time to enjoy the views over St Andrews Bay. There were some absolutely stunning sunsets last week, which we did our best to capture and just wanted to share.
Hope everyone is well and safe. We are always on hand if you have any questions.

It has been eerily quiet the past few weeks at Kinkell. Very strange not to have the buzz of the next wedding around the place.
The first thing to mention is our sincere commiserations to the couples that should have been getting married during this time. It has been absolutely heartbreaking speaking to them. We have done our very best to find new dates and alternative arrangements. But it has been so sad to see such important lifetime plans having to be changed. Thank you to all our couples who have been so understanding through this time and we hope you will all be celebrating at Kinkell Byre before too long.
The second thing to mention is a big thank you to many of our regular suppliers, (caterers, lighting, bars, florists, decorators, everyone) who have been extremely helpful and supportive to us and to our couples during the upheaval.
And we must not forget our lovely staff, who I am very pleased to say are all well and happy, if going a little stir crazy with the current restrictions.
Even though the Byre has been strangely quiet, we have been busying ourselves with various bits and pieces. Working out a way through this crisis for the business has been interesting! We have put together a new drone video of Kinkell Byre and done our first ever remote tours by video call. And there are a few bits of maintenance and housekeeping that it has been good to catch up on.
But, of course, our final word must be to the couples who should have been married by now. All our sympathy goes out to you. We can only promise that once we are all through this, we will make every effort to make sure you all have an extra special day.
Stay safe & well everyone,

The Kinkell Byre Team

Owing to the ongoing crisis we have put together a video from footage on file for people who would like to come and look around but aren't able to at the moment. Photos never quite do the Byre justice! Additionally, we can offer you virtual showrounds through video calls. We can show you around the Byre remotely (WhatsApp, Zoom etc) and answer your questions. ...
