/ what are the midges on skye like at present?
2 weekends ago The Slig was midge death on a still evening (although now a few dozen less from the ones I breathed in / ate), but absolutely fine on the following breezy morning. Slig got a lot of North-Easterly breeze, Glen Brittle much less.

Hha ha haa! Prepare to SUFFER.
bugger. the midge forecast is showing only 3/5 for skye, but that seems to be based on portree
having experienced midge hell at sligachan in the past, may give that one a miss...
unfortunately, aviemore showing as 4/5 on that forecast, which was the other main choice
might have to grit my teeth for the long haul to the NW as per my other recent thread, negligible midges reported there- does that match anyone's recent experience...?
Very few midges in Sheigra at the weekend, due to a fresh breeze all the time. When that dropped there were a few.
