Scotland has been having unusually warm and dry weather and the result is the worst midgie season on record. These are tiny black insects that can drive a reasonable person wild, itchy and sore. Like me. Fortunately I’ve brought my midgie repellent with me to the West of Scotland because Oban is sold out of all midgie-related products and has been for several days.
The favoured midgie repellent is a body lotion, Skin so Soft, by Avon which was found to sort out the midgies and is now sold as a repellent. It smells lovely! Lia wants to export some so we hope that the shops can restock soon.
