We love sharing our reindeer and local knowledge with you. You could join one of our reindeer herders on a hill trip and find out everything you need to know about reindeer or maybe join us while we are travelling around the country at Christmas time. Did you know that reindeer don't melt the snow they lie on because of their big warm winter coats, or that the Cairngorms (where our reindeer live) boast the highest, coldest and snowiest plateau in the British Isles?
It does not stop there either - Tilly Smith, manager of the Cairngorm Reindeer has written "The Real Rudolph". Following on from her first book "Velvet Antlers, Velvet Noses", "The Real Rudolph" explores everything reindeer related, including an account of a very special trip she made to Mongolia in 2005 to visit reindeer herding people. We also have a DVD "4 Seasons". Produced by Alex Smith, narrated by Emily Singleton and filmed by reindeer herders working here over a duration of 3 years, it follows the Cairngorm Herd throughout the year, covering the changes the reindeer undergo throughout this time and how we are involved with them on the hill.
