April and early May are midge free but can be pretty cold. This is what the midges were like this August and nearly ended my walk: https://wildwalkinguk.com/2020/08/30/dover-to-cape-wrath-chapter-13-the-scottish-national-trail-part-4/

Burn a mosquito coil in your tent before you open it. They will all die within 5 minutes. It's a pleasure to watch them falling off the mesh of your tent.


Btw: very nice photos in your report. I love your camp spots too!
