I think I'd take a headnet and something to deter them - as a precaution at least. They were about near Inverie last year in mid May....
Smidge works well according to 2 others I know who have used it (wife and mate)- he claimed that midges visibly veered away as they appoached!
She reported being the only camper headnet-free when she used it in Harris in August last year...
'Big' can though ....
Certainly used a headnet in Knoydart first week of June last year.
I would suspect the midges might be a bit later in arriving this year due to the colder weather we have been experiencing during May. Apparently it was -4C in Aboyne last night. More frosty mornings should delay their appearance.

Looks familiar! (The hot-tub and the duck, not the other occupant).
I've found Smidge to be very good, at least against the slightly less fearsome Welsh Midge. Smells ok too and doesn't eat plastic. We're buying some for our SARDA handlers and Bodies.
According to today's Press and Journal this years Midge Forecast has been launched.
