Oh, I know! I have heard the midges are bad in summer. Mind you, I'm not even sure what a midge IS, but people say it like it's a bad thing. Some kind of biting fly I think?
When we went in October of 2008 it was the most wonderful place i could imagine. Food was so fresh and yummy. People SO nice, especially in the countryside vs big city (although they were nice too).
WEirdest to me was how good Edinburgh smelled...I'm used to big cities being stinky, but it smelled like good food.
Oh, one downside is the lack of radio stations. Where I live in Florida I have 3 country music stations on my presets, plus NPR, plus two pop stations. And there are a ton of others to choose from. In many places in Scotland there were at best two or three stations, each playing a blend of different genres. In some areas only one station came in.
