Hi from Malcolm
If you enjoy the outdoors, wildlife, weather, landscape and adventure, then you’ve come to the right place! I firmly believe that wild places are essential for our wellbeing and I love helping people explore wilderness and find inspiration and adventure.
I set up Arc Guiding because I was increasingly being asked to provide guiding and education to private clients. I also work year round as a freelance instructor and guide, for some of the best providers in the business.
I’m a zoologist by training and, after a number of years in this work, have developed a fairly laid back attitude, wicked sense of humour and a fondness for chocolate. You can find out more about me here.
