Decided to come back via Coalpit for a look. (note - a lot of snow in the hills around Poolburn). Coalpit was more like snowpit! Snow ice over the whole pond and still hard enough for a skate on the shady side. Good fun though a bit bumpy. The ice would be risky in the warm - made that hollow rumble and particular cracking that thinner snow ice makes. Track in had about 15cm of snow.
