Welcome


The Scottish Midge Forecast will be back next year

The Scottish Midge Forecast just ended its tenth year, helping you plan your outdoor activities throughout the season.

Using a set of algorithms relating midge activity to a variety of environmental and seasonal factors, the forecast is supported by live catch data from a network midge traps operated by brave volunteers across the country.

The forecast is supported by Scotland's exciting new repellent, Smidge, providing immediate, powerful and waterproof protection for up to 8 hours.
