HOW TO SEE CAIRNGORM REINDEER
The Cairngorm Reindeer visitor centre at Glenmore near Aviemore is open most of the year, closing from late January to the February half-term. Guided tours to visit the herd on the hill take place daily starting at 11am, with additional tours in summer.
Dress for the conditions, which can change rapidly in Cairngorm – Arctic blasts of freezing cold air are possible at almost any time of year. Forgot your boots? Hire wellies from the visitor centre for 50p.
In the run-up to Christmas, reindeer from the Cairngorm herd go on a tour that takes them all over Britain. For more information visit www.cairngormreindeer.co.uk or call 01479 861228.
