  • Had an excellent morning out at the reindeer centre! We arrived early (about 9.45am) and joined the rapidly growing queue to get tickets for the guided tour of the reindeer enclosure. The walk up was really picturesque and then we were overwhelmed by the number and friendliness of the reindeer! The guides showed us which were friendly enough to eat food from our hands, which our young children really enjoyed. The staff were friendly and extremely knowledgeable - all were clearly passionate about their work and the animals. Many thanks!
  • We did the trip on a very cold -10 blizzard type day and it was really tough getting up the mountain and a but scary but the staff had been completely honest about the trek and the weather before hand.

  • Fun activity for the family! You can tell they care about the reindeer when you get to the mountain. A very cool and memorable experience.
  • Absolutely amazing. An unforgettable experience. Informative guides. What fantastic friendly creatures.
  • A wonderful experience in unspoilt nature just a short easy walk from the ski centre. The guides provided a lot of interesting facts about reindeer and their re-introduction in Scotland in the 1950s.
