Welcome to Garbhein Bed and Breakfast, our modern, very comfortable, slightly quirky home, nestling in what was the Cuilfail Hotel gardens in the village of Kilmelford at the head of Loch Melfort, 14 miles South of Oban on the A816

Garbhein  offers two very comfortable double rooms on the first floor, both with en suite shower rooms, television, and courtesy tray. Free WI FI throughout the house.

There is a bright and spacious guest lounge on the ground floor which is designed to catch light from the morning, afternoon and evening sun.

 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 are 3 other restaurants a short drive away.

Garbhein is directly opposite the Cuilfail Hotel immediately behind the wooden fence ( PLEASE NOTE :  sat nav may take you to the wrong end of the village )


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

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