Cleg is the Scottish word for a horse fly. They are experts at landing on you without you feeling it and then they bite you, hard. Some people get a quite bad reaction to it and it's bloody painful.

Midges are smaller than mosquitoes but their numbers are high and they bite a lot more often - clegs are horseflies and have a mighty bite.

Hi Guys.

Looks like we cannot get a holiday at the same time over here. This is mainly because we are already going to the UK this year.

Too bad but maybe next year!
