Midge re­pel­lent

Scot­land’s moun­tains, lochs and forests are beau­ti­ful, but be­tween June and Septem­ber in any damp and hu­mid con­di­tions, midges are a real prob­lem. “In New Gal­loway For­est Park, midge re­pel­lent is es­sen­tial, not op­tional, un­less you want to be eaten alive while try­ing to take pho­tos,” says Morag. “The best stuff is Avon Skin So Soft mois­tur­izer, which the army use, and once any ex­posed skin is cov­ered you’ll be pro­tected. There was a breeze when we were shoot­ing which helps de­ter the lit­tle blighters, but we still lath­ered our­selves in the stuff and man­aged to avoid be­ing bit­ten.”
