Mike is now most of the way through qualifying as a full international mountain guide on the British Mountain Guide scheme. Much of his time is spent out in the alps but still loves the unique challenges and great training that Cuillin guiding offers. This is his 5th season working with Skye Guides. Modest and understated he exudes and instills confidence in his clients with a calm, good humoured nature.
Mike started climbing and mountaineering as a child with his dad then did a degree in outdoor education at Charlotte Mason college in Ambleside.
Overseas he has had trips to Yosemite, Himalayas, Alps and India and moved to North Wales 2013 for the amazing trad climbing and started work for PyB. He has his MIC and is now on the British Mountain Guides scheme.
