Many years I have been hiking and scrambling in and around the hills and mountains of the UK. I run a small walking group which meets regularly. I am trying to make a dent in the munro list!! I just enjoy being outdoors when ever I can :)

comment What type of mosquito repellent is most effective?
It is difficult to find any independent review as it is a relatively new product and is marketed really for midges and ticks in Scotland. Gearweare (gearweare.com/review/smidge) have a review of the product but they do not go into effectiveness specifically on mosquitoes. There are a few forum posts as well. I'll let you know how effective it is!
