Parked just off the minor road a short distance east of the track end, to the south of the hill. Followed the track to the masts, then through the gate and across to the trig point. Beautiful cold, sunny day. Great views.LizH17/11/2019
First of Perth trio... from Parking for St Magdalene’s Hill to the north. Up the mast track, over the M90, then pleasant path through the woodland before joining the other mast track. Short walk over field of bullocks to the trig. Suspicion that the ground near the smaller mast could be higher. Sunny, and great views over PerthN.Morters13/11/2019

From Perth Railway station, following streets to top of hill and signposted tracks. Much more pleasant than Kinnoull Hill. Great panorama, fine bridge over motorway. On to Burghmuir.Thearlaichdubh11/07/2017
Parked in pleasant free carpark in Moncreiff to NE of summit then walked on marked path over the motorway, through woods and up to summit through sheep pasture with aerials.

Parked easily to south and then up zig zag track to summit. Trig appears to be highest point.chriswatson05/10/2011
With Geoff Entwistle, a SCD leader with HF holidays. He was surprised to find how few Marilyns he had visited after a lifetime of hill walking! By bus to the end of route 5. On streets, over motorway and on bridal paths through a farm and woods, following coloured rings to the top of Moredun Hill. Then down to the column 5924 at 14.15, which I visited in June 2000. Views over River Earn's oxbows. I continued upwards to a path over another motorway to farmland with a herd of cows and to the top at 15.40. Column 6012. Waited 20 minutes for a return bus.arranc08/09/2011
