Cold day on Windy hill

Spent today down near Dalmellington.
It was bright and frosty with a light breeze making it was pretty damn chilly on the top of Windy Standard.

Some great views across to the Merrick, Loch Doon and the heavy frost on the top of Cairnsmore of Carsphairn stuck there all day.
Some of the lower tracks were churned up by forest operations but the mud in the shade was at least solid the muck in the sun was just awful.

I was back at the car a bit early so went off to investigate a possible link across to the Dalmellington forest at the source of the Nith, ended up doing a bit more than I expected along a push in a ride for about half a kilometre.
I was a little worried I might be lost in the forest in darkness so was working quite hard, turned out OK though, got back to the car at 4.40pm just as the light was going.
May add an option to the web page.

See a full description and map of the route here.
