Yes, I think the midges were even worse than they were when we camped on the Isle of Rum.....
I'll try to avoid 'bagging' so many midge bites from now on! :D

This is a great report - thinking of doing the four rather than the six on Friday if the weather looks okay. Your timing for the cycling - was that including many stops or were you peddling away non-stop?

Hi SMRussell - that time for the cycle in included a few short stops (maybe totalling 10 mins max) and we weren't the quickest of cyclists - so you could probably manage the cycle in a bit quicker if you don't stop. Fingers crossed for good weather!
