Hoof Prints: Sixty Years of Reindeer in the Cairngorms

Hoof Prints is a nostalgic collection of time sensitive photos and press cuttings of the Cairngorm Reindeer, with stories and anecdotes taken from over the 60 years of reindeer on the Cairngorms. It begins with a brief biography of Mikel Utsi, and Ethel Lindgren, then moves through the years from the original reindeer grazing down in the depths of the Rothiemurchus forest to the high tops of the Cairngorms. It tells the stories of herders come and gone and shows some spectacular photographs depicting the events over the past 60 years.

***NEW*** Reindeer Calendar 2020

In our 2020 calendar we are taking a look back of the history of the herd, from the early days when Mikel Utsi brought the reindeer over, to when the herd was more established. Each month features large colour photos of our beautiful reindeer, perfect for brightening your wall!


Reindeer Pelt

We source our reindeer pelts from Finland, where the reindeer are still managed by the Sami people as free-ranging livestock. The Sami do not waste any part of the animal, and while the meat is eaten, skins are used for boots, clothes and bags, and are a valuable by-product. By selling the skins the Sami are able to supplement their income. The reindeer are culled humanely and never for sport or just the skins alone. We therefore feel able to support their farming practice. Please note, whilst we will try to match your colour preference, we cannot guarantee it as it depends on the stock we have in. Dark skins tend to have the legs cut short.
