The Cairngorm Reindeer Herd is Britain's only free-ranging herd
of reindeer found in the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland. These tame and friendly animals are a joy to all who come and see them. Reindeer are not just for Christmas.
There are currently around 150 reindeer in the herd, mostly ranging on the Cairngorm Mountains with the remainder on the Glenlivet Estate, the locations being some 30 miles apart.
The shop and paddocks are open daily (except Jan/early Feb) and there is a daily guided visit to the reindeer, departing from Reindeer House at 11.00 am. There are additional afternoon visits during the Summer months. During the Winter, the visit may be dependent on whether we can find the herd. We said they're free-ranging and we mean it!
