Hike up t o visit the reindeer in their lower pastures. They are fascinating and very friendly (especially if you have food). An interesting animal to learn about, once native to the area. These are the reindeer who visit schools and holiday parks at Christmas time. In June we got to see some of the babies which were a couple of months old and still nursing.

Well organized hill walk to see reindeer. The two leaders who guided the walk were knowledgeable and friendly. Some of the visitors were a bit pushy and wanted to be first to see the reindeer and get their photos. Tip: wait until they are done (because then they want to be the first to leave) and hang out awhile. We were the last to leave, and the guide took a walk to find the mama reindeer so he could offer supplemental bottles of milk to the twins.

We enjoyed the Hill Walk very much. The children there also seemed to love it once they got up there.

Seeing and interacting with the free-range reindeer herd was an amazing experience. The reindeer were gentle and highly amusing to observe, each with their own distinct personality. Our guides were obviously experienced and cared deeply about the well-being of the animals, and also were approachable and willing to answer questions. We were lucky enough to see the baby twin reindeer, although we had to restrain ourselves from petting them as the guides told us the babies were starting to get a bit too interested in humans. I would go back to see the herd in a heartbeat and would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Cairngorm.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit, educational but lovely to be so close to the reindeer, and to learn the history of their arrival in Scotland.
