Skin so soft

I'm looking to get some skin so soft to keep the midges from biting the kids when we venture to the Loch Ness area towards the end of June, i have been on the Avon website but there are so many different skin so soft products, can anyone tell me which is the one i should get?

Re: Coire na Creiche and the Fairy Pools

Re: PEAK DISTRICT - HOPE - HATHERSAGE - WIN HILL

I was born in the shadow of Win Hill on the Yorkshire Bridge estate just below Ladybower Reservoir, and now live t'other side of the hill in Bradwell. It's my favourite hill in the world, and i never tire of seeing it or climbing it.

Re: LADYBOWER STROLL

The rock formations are actually a land slip, its called Alport Castles. I was born within a stones throw (literally) of Ladybower and now live within 3 miles of it, its still the best place in the world to me.

Re: High Pressure on the way....

7 days too late for me, i was up in Torridon last week along with the wind, rain and mist, and work commitments will probably mean i miss the chance to walk anywhere in what could be the last few decent days of a terrible summer.

Sea Eagle

I often saw 2 large birds circling overhead last week (when the weather was fit enough) while i was staying in Shieldaig near Torridon, after enquiring locally i was told they were Sea Eagles. I sat for ages one day watching them through my binoculars, fantastic!!
