It's amazing how things develop. After all, this blog started out as a news section for the rest of the website. With encouragement from readers, it has become a place for relating my countryside wanderings and musings about the world of outdoor activity. Walking, cycling and photography all are part of what I do out-of-doors and, hopefully, they will continue to inspire me to keep adding entries on here. Of course, there needs to be something of interest to you, dear reader, too and I hope that's the case. Thanks for coming.
Midges can be a right nuisance to walkers in Scotland but they also exist in Ireland as well. Neverthless, the Scottish ones have a reputation of legendary proportions. I have been irritated by them but I thinks that others suffer more, some so much so that they are put off Scotland for life. Midgeforecast.co.uk then is a useful weapon in the armoury of the outdoors enthusiast. The forecast was developed by scientists at the University of Edinburgh and uses weather forecasting and midge traps to inform visitors of the pest level of these blighters so that any discomfort can be avoided.
