    Yes

    We are on the Moray Firth and don't get bothered by them at all. I've just been out with the dog - beautiful blue sky, warm sunshine (when the wind drops:winky:), watching the seals basking on the rocks - it's on days like this that I know why we moved up here:thumb:

    yes.. the east coast is *generally* too cold and windy for midges ..

    personally, I would rather have the midges :winky:

    buy odourless garlic capsules from the health shop ,I,m normally a 6 course meal to the dreaded midgets,but they seem to help,they don't like garlic,the west coast is the best for scenery, but the worst for midgets:winky::winky:
