Suitable for ages: Babies and Toddlers (0-3), Young Children (4-8) and Older Children (9-12)

Venue type: Outdoor

There are currently around 150 reindeer at the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre, approximately 50 of them ranging the Cairngorm Mountains and the remainder on the Glenlivet Estate, the locations being some 30 miles apart.

There is a daily visit to the reindeer, weather permitting, departing from Reindeer House at 11:00. There is an additional visit at 14:30 during the Summer months. During the Winter months, the visit may be dependent on whether they can find them. They say they're free-ranging and they meant it! They are also potentially talking a solid 30 minute walk over rough, snowy and icy terrain, so you must be well equipped with appropriate clothing and footwear and have a fair level of fitness.

Under the supervision of their trained guides, visitors can feed and stroke the reindeer. A treasured memory for any child and fantastic fodder for family photos!

It can be muddy at the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre so please remember your wellies or boots! Wellies can be hired at the Centre along with kiddy carrier backpacks as the walk is not suitable for buggies. The Hill Visit is not suitable for wheelchairs either. For those unable to make it onto the hill they have a small group of reindeer in the paddock, accessible for all, from Easter to New Year.
