Deer Range Diary

We thought you might like to see how Rannochs antlers are coming on. Well they are fully grown now and I'm sure you will agree look pretty good!
They are still covered with velvet which supplies blood to the growing antler. The Velvet will start dropping off soon helped by Rannoch, who will be rubbing his antlers on anything he comes across.

Our tours of the deer range are now in full swing. Sundays - Thursdays 10am start.

Here are a couple of photos taken recently, including Rannoch and his new antlers of course!

Happy holidays!
