At Loch Ken right now and have been for a few days. Sunny calm weather but NO midges. Still a little early in the season, but most wooded areas of Scotland by water will be hoaching in this weather, so Loch Ken must be something of a midge-free zone.

We just got back from Isle of Skye, I'd googled before we went and it said said no midges. But soon as we arrived, so did they!
Wasn't happy as we've loads of lotions and potions but I'd left them at home 🙄 Next time I'll go prepared what ever google says!
I was at Loch Ken this weekend. It's a great campsite and I'd recommend it.
I pitched at the top corner of the tent field, with great views but exposed to the wind (I'd checked the forecast to ensure no strong winds). I had no problem with midges. I think there were some if you'd pitched down by the water side.
