Coronavirus Update 22/01/21

We are currently closed to the public due to the restrictions in place. It is unlikely that we will open again before the end of March, but will keep updating on here as the situation develops.

If you would like to, you can send a donation: We’d like to highlight that we’re not a charity, but all funds raised will go directly to continuing to care for the reindeer herd. Thank you so much for your support through these crazy times!

The Cairngorm Reindeer Herd is Britain’s only free-ranging herd of reindeer found 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.

The Shop is open daily (except Jan-early Feb) and there is a daily guided Hill Trip to see the reindeer. During the Winter, the trip may be dependent on whether we can find the herd. We said they’re free-ranging and we mean it!

Information about “Summer Fun” and our “Christmas Fun” weekends in December can be found by clicking on the names above. Please note we don’t yet know whether these activities will run in 2021!
