Covid Test for Hikers

Hey,
we plan on flying to Scotland on Thursday and since we are traveling from Germany and are fully vaccinated we only need to complete a PCR test on or before day 2 after our arrival.
Since we can only use the website provided by the government we tried to book 2 test but it requires you to provide an adress where the test kit will be delivered to.

Since we plan on hiking the West Highland Way we dont have an hotels booked and only plan to stay at camping sites. Does anyone know if I can get the test delivered to the airport (Edinburgh) so we can take them there right after our arrival or if we can get them sent to a camping site?

Its really frustrating since there seems to be no information for hikers available. Is it required to book a hotel if we want to come to Scotland? What happens if the test isnt there in time? Do we have to cancel our plans or what are we supposed to do? Is there really no way to take the test at the aiport?

Any help would be very much appreciated. Im pretty lost.
