    Wayne forget the skin so soft that's fine in England, but Argyllshire midges will eat you wearing that rubbish ,Smidge is now the way to go there's not much better on the market, it doesn't melt you binocs or you plastic stocks.

    If your needing a tin give me a call or you can get it in most of the shops or at the Marina along the road form the ground .

    The midge has been pretty bad the last few days .

    Ah, see I was steering folk back onto Rob's sale thread for Smidge but it got ambushed by Avon fans - so the idea 'kind of worked' except Wayne will now be buying from the Marina!
    Ahh well...
    I agree that Jock midges are positively 'nuclear' compared to Cumbria midges, my time at Glencoe and Gaerlochead in OPs was pretty miserable in summer!

    I got a thermacell last year, and have been using it for a couple of trips this year. I was bitten to bits one evening without it, and the next with it running i was really happy with it, no midge problems! It is early days yet, but my minimal experience with it is that it will work well

    I've been trying Smidge for 2 or 3 years now.

    It's the only thing I've ever tried that actually works, other than a head net of course.

    However what Smidge does is stop the midges biting you. It will not stop them landing on you and walking about or flying into your eyes and mouth and so on. My experience is that a lot of people are greatly bothered by the midges walking all over them as it itches and that this makes up a major part of their annoyance. I've seen people badly bothered with midges with hardly a bite on them. If you are one of those people then Smidge will do very little for you, if you want to stop midges biting you then I've had a 100% success with it in the sense that I don't get a single bite on the bits I've covered with Smidge.
