Located at the rear of the wedding barn, they feature underfloor heating, cool thunderbox loo seats handmade with recycled wood from the Byre, luxury Scottish Fine Soap toiletries, original Country Life photographic plates found in the Inchyra archives, plus zoned music so you can play separate sounds from the rest of the Byre.
