My boyfriend Hamish and I are travel enthusiasts, and so after the first lockdown, we were desperate to get away. But with international travel still a no-go, we looked closer to home and decided a trip to the Highlands of Scotland would do now that tier restrictions had been lifted. Four mountains, four million midge bites, 200 miles on foot, and three weeks (in a tent) later saw us completely rethinking our approach to budget travel, with sustainability on our weary minds. With no buses running, we were forced to walk every mile, and with little accommodation open, we had to camp. However, I would not have changed a thing, and it will always remain in my top three holidays for experience and enjoyment.
