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.
Our shop in Glenmore is open daily (except Jan-early Feb) and there are daily guided Hill Trips to see the reindeer. During the Winter, the Trip is weather-permitting, and also may be dependent on whether we can find the herd. We said they’re free-ranging and we mean it!
