/ Is there any chance of midges in the Cairngorms ?
How high? I got lightly swarmed at about 400m altitude on the west coast on sunday.
Don't know about the Cairngorms but got a severe midging in Skye yesterday afternoon, so they are still around. No frosts yet.
They're on the way out, and you shouldn't get too much bother, but I'd still pack the counter-measures!
