REINDEER

Reindeer were re-introduced into Scotland in 1952 by a Swedish Reindeer Herder, Mikel Utsi. Starting from a few reindeer, the herd has grown in numbers over the years and is currently held at between 130 and 150. Living in their natural environment out on the Cairngorm Mountains you can often see them around the ski area. 

The reindeer are managed by the Cairngorm Reindeer Centre in Glenmore who operate daily visits to the herd. For more information visit their website www.reindeer-company.demon.co.uk
