Bloody Midges

Recommended Posts

Down at my dads on West Loch Tarbert and a glorious, calm Scottish evening rendered useless by the worst midges I can ever remember this early in the season and this despite an expensive anti midge system being deployed. They really are a plague rendering beautiful warm calm nights like this totally useless. Forced us indoors for the CL final. Kintyre midges take a lot of beating, any tips ?

In these politically correct days you cant call them midgies.

You have to call them persons of restricted growth.

WTF are they doing to you anyway? Cant they enjoy the sun like everyone else?

Careful, oaky, you'll be accused of being a fascist for making fun if a minority.

Have you ever been up in that neck of the woods when the midges go berserk? It would tip a man over the edge. It's perfectly acceptable to call them anything you like. Thinking about over the edge, could be quite a few guys on this forum have been up there.

Spent the weekend based in Oban, visited Mull & Iona and the Trossachs on the way home and only got bitten once. That's a result for me, I'm usually midgie central....

Here's proof that Iona's actually in the Caribbean and not the Hebrides.

I nap on that beach, flat out on the silver sands, once a month.

There's a wee white-painted hut. Just in front of it. A nice sheltered groove - and nae midges.

eta And never any rain.

Welcome back auld yin, we've all missed you (oaky doesn't count).
