Now that we're coming into spring my thoughts are firmly fixed on warmer climes, less rain (or snow), longer days and woohoo - midges! I recall summers in the Scottish Highlands and the Cairngorms when we used to get chewed by them there blasted midges leaving you peppered with purple dots looking like a sufferer of the plague. For some reason they are immune to any kind of deet or over the counter insect repellent treating it as more as a flavour enhancer.
That was until we got yakking on the the Monarch of the Glen crew who were filming up there at the time. Their secret was none other than Avon Skin So Soft. When you discover this you'll start to notice the independant shops stocking it like the fury! So what is the secret? God only knows but lather this on and you won't know those misdges are there, the only midgie repellant out there that really works alas! Oh joy!
