    We have been to see both the reindeer in the corral next to the herd on the Hill. It was magnificent. The boys call the best thing about our holiday in Scotland. the reindeer are reachable with a nice little walk. just arrived you are surrounded by these wonderful and docile animals. the guide was very nice and very informative. We hold back long enough but if you hurry you can reenter it yourself without waiting for the group with which he hopped. We got there about 30 minutes before departure and we found a place (28 July)

  • Such an amazing day out!! You do a lovely walk slightly uphill with amazing views then you come to the mountain side where you get to feed and pet the reindeer.. Definitely would visit again
  • Excellent guided tour! The guide is very informative and passionate, and reindeers are beautiful and friendly. Highly recommended.
  • A short but informative guided walk, watching the reindeers in action and hand-fed. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide.
  • So much fun! Even the freezing cold and pouring rain couldn't make us enjoy this experience any less - it was really something special. The staff were friendly and informative, the walk to the paddock was beautiful and the reindeer were amazing. We would do this again without hesitation.
  • Beautiful animals and we got to feed the raindeers. Hilltop hike with the Centre is recommended
