What Couples Say

“We had our wedding at Kinkell Byre in August 2023, and it was the best decision we made. As soon as we viewed the venue, we knew we had to host our wedding here. Sandy and his team are amazing, and they were so patient and understanding during the Covid period where we had to postpone. Our guests were blown away, and it was the perfect blank canvas for us to bring our vision for our wedding to life. It was important that we had a space where we could reflect both our Scottish and Indian cultures (as well as cater for a large number of guests!) and Kinkell Byre surpassed all of our expectations. A particular thank you to Claire and Sophie who both made sure that our day was the most special day of our lives. They took the stress out of everything, were so responsive to all of our emails and questions, and also made us feel like no task was too big. Kinkell has a personal family feel with a team who are able to achieve exceptional professional standards. Stevie also did a brilliant job of the lighting and the compèring on the day. Stevie has exacting standards too and his attention to detail is impeccable – we couldn’t be happier with the lighting, and also how he ran the day so smoothly. The team at Kinkell genuinely care, and it comes across in everything that they do. Thank you to everyone at Kinkell Byre for making our wedding day the best day of our lives. The Chauhans.”

“We had our wedding reception in Kinkell Byre in June and it was the perfect venue! All the staff involved made the entire experience from booking to the day, seamless. They are always on hand for any queries and go above and beyond to make your day extra special. We had so many compliments from our guests about the venue, location, views and staff. Recently they opened on site cabins for guests to stay in. All of our guests took up the cabins and they couldn’t believe how spacious, modern and comfortable they were. Not forgetting very affordable! We can’t wait to try them for an overnight soon. If you are looking for a unique venue with the opportunity to plan a wedding exactly to your dreams in the heart of beautiful St Andrews then Kinkell is the one. Thank you so much to the team at Kinkell Byre!”
