“Great Accommodation!”
Reviewed July 3, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed here as a family group my wife and I, our daughter and her partner and their (then), one month old baby daughter.
To explain the set up, The main house (Ornum House) is the owners home and is also run as a B&B. Physically attached to Ornum House is another rental cottage known as Ornum Cottage which has two bedrooms.
Roe Deer Cottage is behind the main house, furthest from the entrance to the property but still only about 50-70 yards from the main road. I use the term main road in the broadest sense of the word. Broallan, the region where the cottage is situated is a couple of miles, and several hundred feet above the village of Beauly. The 'Main Road' is a rural road with passing places. It is in a quiet rural location.
When we first looked online at booking a cottage we were drawn to the area because we'd stayed (very) near here before, albeit 15 or so years before.
When first looking online at Roe Deer Cottage, we loved the pictures of the inside of the cottage but were somewhat concerned by the look of the outside, which appears to resemble a kind of wooden alpine portacabin with a metal roof. In some respects that's what it is, although once inside it feels exactly like a normal brick built bungalow.
Please do not be worried . Roe Deer Cottage is one of the nicest rental properties we have ever stayed in. Beautifully decorated and furnished, and all the utensils, crockery, glasses, plates etc, you need are supplied. There are two bathrooms, (one on-suite), with great showers. Three Bedrooms (two with double beds and one with bunk beds for youngsters)....and three TV's. one in the lounge, another in main bedroom and the other in the conservatory. The Lounge is very large and the dining room is also a very good size.
Could go on and on, the cottage is great...and huge. I paced it out and from one end to the other it's (approximately) 25 yards! and beyond that the cottage has its own enclosed private garden separate from the main house.
There are restaurants in Beauly about 2 miles away, there is (cheap) 9 hole golf at Aigas about 2 miles away and an 18 hole course at Muir of Ord. The city of Inverness is about 12 miles distant and has several attractions and many restaurants.
Finally the owners Ellis and Fiona are very friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and a lovely touch was the delicious home made fruitcake left out for our arrival.
Would definitely stay here again if in area and would wholeheartedly recommend.
