UPDATE 25/07/21: Our Hill Trips are running as normal, though we will meet you directly at the car park at the start of the walk (directions provided on booking). Unfortunately the Shop and Paddocks/Exhibition are currently closed – we hope to reopen fully from the 5th August, to be confirmed.
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!
