Paddocks and Exhibition
N.B. the Reindeer Centre is completely closed to the public from 10th January, reopening on 12th February 2022.
On February afternoons, the Paddocks is run as “Winter Herder Talks in the Paddocks” – please click here to read about this option!
In the February half term and from Easter to New Year a small group of reindeer are cared for down at the Reindeer Centre in Glenmore. The Paddocks are perfect for children and for visitors who are unable to go on the Hill Trip. They are wheelchair and pushchair accessible, and as well as being able to see the reindeer, there is lots of information about every aspect of reindeer and quizzes for children. This is the perfect alternative for those who can’t take part in our Hill Trips due to the weather or difficult terrain, offering a personal introduction to the reindeer in the more sheltered conditions in the glen.
Please note that whilst you will get a close up view of the reindeer here, there is no direct contact with them and no opportunity to feed them.
To reduce crowding in the Paddocks, we are offering timed entry slots throughout the day – you are welcome to spend as long as you like in the Paddocks once you have arrived. We recommend allowing around 30 minutes to look round. Tickets are best booked online, or we can take bookings in the shop if capacity allows – in holiday seasons please do book in advance!
Children aged 3 & under are free.
