  • We loved the hike up to see the reindeer and learning all about them. The guides were so knowledgeable, you could tell they really loved their jobs! Make sure to take some Smidge for the midges.

  • We went on the hill trip with our kids, and had the most beautiful experience. The hike was very doable, and the people guiding the tour we're very friendly. They gave you all the time you needed with the reindeer, were very open to questions and did all they could to help us and the kids to feed the animals and get some lovely pictures.
  • Thoroughly enjoyable experience. Picked our tickets up before heading up to the meeting point. A bit boggy on our route but we were well warned in communication leading upto the day - this did make the trek humorous at times. Beautiful scenery, staff friendly and knowledgeable and you can see they really enjoy their job and volunteering. Would return when visiting the area again. Thank you
  • Fantastic entertainment for all families. Contact with reindeer, feeding and being close to them gives an unforgettable experience. Service is very nice and professional. You can see a great commitment and love for what they do. I recommend it to everyone.
  • Very nice experience, Thank you Zach for all the informations provided and for a very pleasant reindeer encounter. I wish there were more people with such a passion for animals and nature! Definitely worth going. Hope to have the chance to visit Scotland again and meet these great creatures!
  • The hill trip to meet and feed the reindeers was fantastic. It rained during our visit but it did not affect the experience at all. Wonderful staff with great explanations about the herd. Make sure you wear hiking boots as you will have to walk down and up the hill which is uneven with lumpy terrain and lots of deer poo.
