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.

Adoption pack
For £39 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.

Adopted reindeer 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.
