    Because you never lived in the Trossachs.

    Ah - nostalgia. I almost feel guilty about not missing living in Scotland.

    I'm going to Inverness in August and forgot these little blighters existed!

    I still remember visiting Fort William as a kid and running through a swarm of bugs that started biting. Ouch!

    You're lucky you came out the other side. Some people run into a cloud of midges and that's the last anyone sees of them...

    best way to keep them at bay if camping, is white smoke (eg ferns!)
    Or a pipe

    There are some even worse midges throughout Scotland
    They have been crossed with leeches, and are known as "The SNP"
