You can adopt a reindeer from our very special free-roaming herd.

All the reindeer in our herd have a name and are individually recognisable. For £37 per year - BUY ONLINE - you can adopt one of our lovely reindeer and, in this way, help to maintain their enviable lifestyle on the Cairngorm Mountains. As an adopter, you become a one of our valued supporters and in return for your financial support, you will receive a certificate and photograph of your chosen reindeer, additional information on reindeer and souvenirs along with two newsletters over the year. You can also visit the herd for free. The adoption subscriptions are spent entirely on the upkeep of the reindeer including their food and welfare in the form of medicines and veterinary care.

All of the reindeer in our herd are available for adoption, but we just put a small selection of our male reindeer online. The reason for this is that our males spend more of the year in an accessible area where we are able to take you to visit them, whereas the females spend more time free-ranging on the high tops and it's less likely that you'll be able to meet your reindeer. However, if you would rather adopt a female, or know of a different male reindeer not shown online, then just get in touch via phone (01479 861228) or email and we'll be able to arrange this for you. Please note that whilst we will endeavour to introduce you to "your" reindeer if you visit, the free-ranging nature of the herd means this may not be possible.

Reindeer available for online adoption


 Born: 2009
Mother: Unknown

Parfa joined our herd from Sweden in 2011. As he didn't see many people as a youngster, he can be a little shy, but really loves to come and handfeed. He is fully trained to pull the sleigh.


Born: 2013
Mother: Fly

Handsome Anster is a big and strong young male. He will be learning to pull the sleigh this autumn, and is sure to look very impressive in harness. He is friendly and likes to meet people.


Born: 2012
Mother: Lulu

Light coloured small male, who has just been trained to pull the sleigh. He likes to meet anyone who has food for him! Named after the Roman numeral for the number 60, as born in the year of our 60th anniversary.


Born: 2011
Mother: Unknown

Matto was born in Sweden, before joining our herd in 2011. He is a sweet natured fellow, though a little bit shy. With his pure white coat and darker spots, he is a strikingly handsome reindeer, and very cute looking!


Born: 2013
Mother: Diddly

Crowdie is one of the smaller reindeer of his age, but has a personality to make sure he doesn't go unnoticed! He is very sweet and confident, loving to meet new people and enjoy some hand feed. He is very good at pulling the sleigh.

Mother: Unknown

Kota is a stunning looking bull who joined our herd from Sweden in 2011. He is a reserved but friendly character, who hand feeds if in the mood, and has successfully fathered a number of calves. Grows huge antlers and is very handsome!

Mother: Tambourine

Ost is a sweet natured fellow, and our youngest breeding bull. He can be a little shy at times, but does love to come and hand feed. He was named in our "cheeses" themed year. It will be great to have him father some calves.


Born: 2010
Mother: Unknown

Shinty joined our herd from Sweden in 2011. He is one of the shyer members of the herd, but he really does want to be brave, and will now come up and enjoy some hand feed if treated with patience. Hopefully with time he'll grow in confidence and tameness.


Born: 2012
Mother: Silk

Cute young male Christmas reindeer who has really gained confidence in the last few months, transforming from a shy fellow who was wary of everything, into a cheeky chap who loves to hand-feed. He's just learned to pull the sleigh and it doing great!
