Well, they're usually smaller but their teeth are the same size!

midges...

Hmmm, brings back a few memories of camping in Scotland!

A few years ago, Louise and I camped near to Bridge of Orchy near Glen Coe. We thought it would be a good palce to camp as there were a few other tents close by. But when we woke up in the morning, the tent was full of the little buggers. When we breathed in, we breathed in midges, and as we exhaled, we exhaled midges So we just leapt out of the tent, rolled it up with the sleeping bags and everything inside, jumped into the car and drove with the windows open all the way to Ballahulish.

Yuch. Never camp anywhere near a peat bog!

Peat bog or not, they'll still come and get you. If you are upwind of them, they'll travel miles over the sea to find you. However, if there's a breeze you will be safe.

Midgies.

The beauty of having our house on the north east coast is:

1. Good cruising waters at the bottom of the garden
2. Only about 60 miles to the west coast if you want a bit of variety
3. NO MIDGIES
