The Cairngorm Reindeer Herd is Britain's only herd of reindeer

found free-ranging 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.

There is a daily visit to the reindeer, weather permitting, 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!
