Anyway I camped on Loch Lomondside and not only did I bring home my first tick of the year, I was swarmed by midges as I packed up the tent. An early start for them this year but they aren't biting yet at least.
I did get to hear a tawny owl and see a tribe of wild goats peacefully browsing in the oak woods just by my tent. The honking of geese in April always cheers me up too, summer is on the way!
Did you use a repellent?

also, how did you treat the bites?
