In 1936 Mary Harvie cycled between hostels around the Scottish highlands with her two sisters. The story of her adventure, she documented in her personal diary which, some 85 years later ended up in the hands of the Scottish Youth Hostel Association.
In celebration of Scotland’s Year of Stories, in 2021, Lee Craigie, Phillippa Battye and Alice Lemkes set out to recreate her journey, hostel-hoping their way over 300 miles around the north-west Highlands.
What would Mary do? tells the tale of this commemorative journey, capturing Scotland’s majestic and remote landscapes, environment and natural heritage together with the true spirit of hostelling.
