Scottish midges

Recommended Posts

Anecdotally if you eat Marmite it is alleged to deter the “bitey”  things from considering you as the next all-you-can-eat buffet! :rolleyes:

I think I'd rather get eaten. 

 

The fist time we went to the Great Glen one of our party got absolutely hammered by them, but the rest of us hardly a bite. There must be something that makes them attack certain people.

We would like to visit the West Coast and have two weeks holiday in October. Recommendations grateful accepted. :D

Bunree is fabulous. Stunning views over the loch, it's a good base for the Clencoe and Fort William areas.

 

The pub over the road will hopefully be open, we went a few years ago, got a very warm welcome and lovely meal, (dog friendly too if needed).

I see the C&CC and the C&MH clubs have both got several articles on places to go up here so it looks like the midges will not be going hungry this year if both clubs expectations of a Scottish Staycation is a reality.

Just got an email from one of our favourite sites

https://fraserburghcampsite.wixsite.com/fraserburgh-campsite

its on the esplanade so it always has a midge defeating breeze.

Its opening on the 15th july.

We always book in advance to try and ensure a sea view pitch.

Glovers fish and chips wonderful wee ex-fishing villages Pennan Gardenstown Crovie see the Eurofighters fly over the beach tea room at Lossiemouth visit the lighthouse museum.

We just visit outside the midge season; far safer given swmbo 's reaction to any bite!

If the midges have not eaten for 2 months they will think it is Christmas when the campers arrive and bring all their lovely blood. The first on a site is likely to get smothered.
