The Scottish Midge Forecast
Keep one step ahead of midges
The Scottish Midge Forecast is created using data collected from biting midge traps and mini-weather stations across Scotland.
This is extended using weather forecast data, giving you a big picture view of midge levels across Scotland throughout the season.
How to read the forecast
We use a scale of 1 to 5 depending on the number of biting midges there are. With level 5 being the most annoying.
