- Scotland – Midgies ??
The type of midges in the lowlands aren’t a problem, and you won’t really have any issues riding in the borders. It’s when you up north (from about loch lomond up) the tiny little feckers just destroy you big style – (do NOT stop)unless you use something to keep them away.Posted 9 years agoThe BeardMember
TBH you don’t get proper midges south of Stirling
You ever been to Galloway Forest Park? Feckers can block out the sun there and strip an Englishman to the bone in seconds…
Course us Scots are immune. 😉
As said above, you’ll be fine as long as you don’t stop, ever, at all, for any reason whatsoever. Whatever you do – KEEP GOING![/u]Posted 9 years agouser-removedMember
Worst I’ve ever seen ’em was at a camp site near Keilder Water. Got tortured by huge clouds of them and had to spend a whole beautiful summer’s evening in my tiny tent. My whole body was red and swollen – and I’m not allergic, and my folks live on Skye, and I’m Scottish…..
If you get them bad, they really can ruin your life.Posted 9 years ago
