Reindeer Herd (Cairngorm Mountains)

contest winner icon

My niece has been working with the reindeer in Scotland's Cairngorm Mountains. They are very tame and a popular tourist attraction all year round. Here she is taking up food for them to supplement their grazing while there is snow on the ground. You need to be young and fit for this job!

My niece works as a reindeer herder in the Cairngorm mountains in Scotland. This is a photo of some of the mothers and calves being herded up to higher ground, where they will spend the summer months. Reindeer were re-introduced to Scotland from Sweden in 1952 and there is now quite a large herd. They are very friendly and docile animals and very popular with visitors.

That is awesome! I would have loved to do something like that when I was young.
