  • The trip to visit the reindeer was one of the best parts of our trip to Scotland. Feeding and petting these animals was wonderful! It was a pretty walk up a hill to the pasture (wear mud boots) where we got to feed and pet the reindeer. Our guide was knowledgeable and patient in answering our questions. I could've sat on top of the hill with those reindeer all day; it isn't something I'll forget! I went with my 4 year old who managed the walk just fine and had fun feeding the deer and jumping in mud.
  • Friendly place with clear love for reindeer. The paddocks are not very exciting, but the real fun is up in the fields. At least when you're not blinded by midges. Refunds are kindly offered if midges are super abundant. The reindeer are very comfortable around people and it is perfectly safe to feed them. Many are not fond of being petted, but will mob you for food. Wear good footwear, it's muddy in the field.
  • Lovely trip up the hill to the reindeer. We where about 12 people but it felt pretty intimate. More the gender taking us up to see her herd than just a play for tourists and their money.
  • WoW what a beautiful place to visit. A must see for everyone who visit the highlands. Really great tour and a great guide. This man is telling everything about the reindeers.
  • Loved our experience getting right up close and feeding the reindeer. The 3 guides on the day with the group were very informative and friendly!
