    i'm going up to Scotland for 2 weeks in 3 weeks time.....Is it true that Avon So Soft is really really good for keeping them dreaded MIGDES away?

    I used to be an Avon lady and the girls in my hubby's office used to use it on holiday abroad and swore by it, haven't tried it myself.

    I've never heard that one before! I reckon if there's a chance it might work give it a go. Those midges are wee buggers.

    They definitely don't like smoke so if you're a smoker it's quite handy! :D

    I've never heard of using that before. I'm allergic to midge bites but I love camping and places where midges are so might have to give it a try.

    I usually find they're not too bad when I'm having a ciggie.

    Whereabouts are you going to? It's worse in some parts of Scotland than others.

    Oh Lossie and Hopeman, I live on the same coast as these places but further along! I'm about 25 miles east of Hopeman!

    It's a lovely part of the world, beautiful stunning scenery, great beaches and walks for the boy, and we've got the dolphins here as well!

    I've never stayed in any of the caravan parks but I hear Lossie's is good, Silver Sands I think it's called.

    We use it all the time when we go fishing, after another fisherman telling us our expensive midge repelant wouldn't work on the Scottish midges :eek::eek:

    I used to use Autan, when we done concert security and it was funny watching other members of the security team, covered in midge bites later :001_tt2::001_tt2::D

    Plus I always get attacked by them :cursing::cursing: so end up covered in bites :eek::eek:

    we have stayed at silver sands in lossie and it is really good .... the beach is gorgeous and if you walk all the way along the beach you will come to a pub that is dog friendly and serves pretty good food if i remember rightly.... we live in montrose on the north east coast.
