I can honestly say that over the last 5/6 years I probably have had 2 nights where they have been a bit of a nuisance. the west is not as bad as it use to be and nothing compare with the horendous 'press' the wee beasties received over the years. hell they dont live long so give them some space anyway its only the female that bits and only if she likes the smell of ya
Sorry if I caused offence Jambo
Been up the East coast to Brora fishing & this year for the first time due to the breeze no midges....
We go to Carradale for a couple of weeks in August and the little sods were appalling last year on a couple of occassins, the kids asked if they could borrow my cigar!
I once drove down to the head of Loch Etive and wondered why everybody was sat in their cars... I've never seen midges like them. Huge clouds that literally covered you and feasted .
Ironically we have a lot in Yorkshire this year!
No issues when out on the water at speed though
