    I've just come back from a weekend over towards Newton Stewart area, and was humbled by the tiny beast, they were absolutely horrendous!! But then you can't expect anything less i suppose, what made it worse was that there was no breeze at all.

    A friend has just come back and said it was terrible for horseflies, midges were not too bad.

    As above, especially horse/biting flies.

    Smidge seems to stop the midges biting which is a bonus. Wear a veil when standing/sitting still, unless you like breathing the ba$tard$

    Avon SSS is great as an all over job, helps keep the tan as a bonus.
    Just had two glorious weeks in D&G then Mull.

    Cheers.

    Up round Straiton way at the moment thought the dog was going to takeoff last night that many flies on him,midges are out on mass as well,oh and those horrible 8 legged blood sucking beasts been flicking them of me and the dog like no tomorrow.
    Seeing quite a few does about but no bucks as yet still beats being at work

    Know Straiton is in South Ayrshire just had brain slippage

    Plenty of breeze today, if it continues it should keep them away. Try smoking a pipe!!
