Welcome to Garbhein, our modern, comfortable, slightly quirky home nestling in what was the Cuilfail Hotel gardens in the village of Kilmelford at the head of Loch Melfort.

Garbhein  offers two comfortable guest rooms on the first floor, both now with en suite shower rooms, television, and courtesy tray.

The bright and airy lounge has windows designed to catch the light from morning till evening. Patio doors from the dining room lead to a patio area where guests can enjoy sitting out on a pleasant evening.

Garbhein is a short walk from the Cuilfail Hotel which serves excellent home cooked bar meals and a selection of beers and local whiskies.


There is adequate private parking beside the house, bicycles and motor bikes can be kept under cover in our garage.

Alcoholic beverages:

Guests are welcome to bring their own tipple. Glasses, corkscrew, and ice can be provided.


Garbhein is a smoke free house. If you wish to smoke please use the patio area.


We regret we cannot take pets. We have a very friendly cat called Cleo who does not like four legged visitors.
