Lucy Spark MCI

Lucy has been a big part of SG and Basecamp for many years and we are delighted to have her in the Skye Guides team. She made the break from teaching after more than a decade of inspiring primary kids with the great outdoors and now uses the same enthusiasm and skill with clients.  Her Cuillin knowledge and experience, climbing & teaching skills guarantee a great day out.
