Richard McGuire - Skye guiding since 1995
The business was established in 1995 by Richard 'Paddy' McGuire, after a varied career which has so far included a Biology degree, a postgraduate library diploma and work as a greenkeeper, trainee motor mechanic, farm labourer, research assistant, school librarian and mobile library driver.
Paddy was brought up on Skye, began going to the hills as a schoolboy, and has walked, scrambled and climbed in the Cuillin for over 40 years. He completed his Munros in 1997 and has walked and climbed in Norway, the European Alps, Majorca, Crete, the Canary Islands and Iceland.
Paddy holds Summer and Winter Mountain Leader certificates, is First Aid qualified, and has been a member of the Skye Mountain Rescue team since 1991 (where he was Equipment Officer for 19 years and is currently Chairman).
