A midge net is an essential piece of kit for any Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Expedition in Scotland (and some other part of the UK) during the summer months. It’s a small price to pay for extra comfort when trying to function around the campsite. Our participants on their recent DofE Silver Qualifying Expedition in the foothills of the Cairngorms where very pleased of theirs!

As Max Hunter’s short film shows the midges can be debilitating meaning that it’s very difficult to put up tents, cook, or even go to the toilet, without getting bitten. Having a midge net means that you will still be able to undertake these tasks in relative comfort.

Luckily there was significant wind during the first night of the expedition so the midges weren’t too much of a problem. Unfortunately the same can’t be said for the 2nd night! However, the participants all coped well with this, and the other aspects of the expedition, and successfully completed their DofE Silver Expedition.
