/ PRODUCT NEWS: OR Bug Bucket..aarrgghh...it's midge season
Whether you are at Kilnsey or Skye. The Barstewards cometh!
It's midge season.
From Outdoor Research: The Bug Bucket
This sun bucket has a no-see-um headnet that protects your face and neck from insects. It can be rolled up over the brim of the hat or tucked under the crown when it's not needed. It can be stuffed into a hidden pocket in the crown when it's time to pack up.
With our infinite guarantee. That means forever!

It was a tiny bit midgy on Sunday on Stanage - that is early!
well I got bitten at dunkeld yesterday and given east coast scotland is normally a month behind the west this is very early. Weird as we had a cold winter. Maybe its the second half of winter/spring which determines the number of midgies that survive at this time of year. Certainly been quite a mild spring in scotland this year.
