Lotions are for wummin .. and just make a man smell like one.
IMO .. None of them work .. although.. some may stop them driving their penetrating proboscis under your skin .. even DEET doesn’t stop their pointed feet stamping on your softer exposed parts while swarming all over you. The very thought of midges... make me itching mad.
There is no killing machine as effective as a midge for its size or weight ..swipe one down and another hundred are hovering ready to land on the vacant patch of skin.. they know they have short life spans ..so are willing to risk all for a drink of human blood
Only one way to stop the wee buggers ..klu Klux clan style hoods and jackets with sleeves. Scares the living daylight out of them.
Of course..if you come before June .. you wont see any ..they don’t like cold weather..or wind ... it kills them off or drives them away.
As for Scottish scenery ? You cant really miss it..its all around you in the countryside..so many locals take it for granted.
Aww naw..not that view again ..there must be more to Scotland than that ?
