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. Not only are they happily roaming about in the wildness of the Cairngorm National Park but you can join us on the mountain to see the herd, and often meet your own adopted reindeer.
For £39 per year, 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.

Reindeer available for adoption
Scolty is a handsome big lad with beautiful large antlers, although not always the boldest character. He has learnt to pull the sleigh this year.
Slioch is one of the darker coloured reindeer in the herd, and is very sweet. He has learnt to pull the sleigh this year so will be out and about at Christmas time.
Houdini was born in Sweden in 2011 and joined our herd later that year. He’s a big, impressive chap, and is one of our main breeding bulls at the moment.
Fyrish is a rather relaxed reindeer, and always seems to be incredibly chilled out. We have bred from him this year so he should have his first calves next spring.
Stuc is one of the shyer characters in the herd, but his greediness often wins him over and he likes to hand-feed! He has learnt to pull the sleigh this year.
Aonach is a quiet lad, but has a lovely gentle nature, and is distinctive with his wide antlers. He’s just learnt to pull a sleigh, and will be a lovely ‘Christmas reindeer’.
Merrick is very unusual in that he only grows one antler, so is a bit lopsided. He’s very bold and cheeky, and loves to hand-feed too.
Koro is generally quite a shy reindeer within the herd. He’s a handsome lad though and we hope to train him to pull a sleigh this year.
Ost was one of our breeding bulls before being trained to harness in 2017. He’s incredibly sweet natured and very gentle – a lovely reindeer!
