My favourite holiday: Kerensa Jennings on why you just can’t beat north-west Scotland

I think you always remember your first big holiday and I recall so much about the first time I went abroad.

I was nine years old and we went to Gran Canaria.

I remember clearly the volcanic landscape and eating paella for the first time. That’s what sticks in my mind. We were staying on my step-uncle’s boat, all crammed in and sleeping head to toe.
