Frosty on Cairn Table

Went over to Muirkirk today to repeat an old route, sneaking up on Cairn Table from behind.
There's a stretch of track over open moor it's flat but hard going due to moss, grass and mud, still about 85% cyclable but argh! so energy sapping and in the sun I lathered up a bit, eventually dressing down a layer to keep cool.
In the trees it was so cold the layer had to go back on.
When the forest track gives out there's a push/carry for just over a kilometre to the top of Cairn Table, but the first half of the run down from the summit is great, second half gets a bit boggy so don't know if it's quite worth the effort.
