12.5km pre-dawn run from the Salutation Hotel in town. More or less light by the time I reached the top. Lovely little hill but couldn’t linger as I had to hurry back to meet colleagues for breakfast.Herbert Anchovy04/02/2020
From Tay Car park on the drive back to Edinburgh from Crieff because it was quite literally on the way. Interesting Iron Age fort. With trimarc2 who, of course, took the difficult way (ie sheer ascent) to the summit.Fionalevey12/08/2019

From Earn Car Park. Easy walk on very hot day.lenman29/06/2019
From purpose built CP at about NO135210 (note - CP 'closes at dusk to prevent anti-social behaviour', though the refuse bin was already upside down, spewing out its contents, as I drove in, so maybe today's ASB had started early....). Easy, well made tracks, followed 'white' route to visit Moredun Top Fort (summit) and Moncrieff Fort.Isbjorn23/06/2019
Walk up from Tay car park, good viewsNozzer17/04/2019
With Martin66, JC & Otis on a sunny & mild winter's day from the Earn car park/road end. Followed track to the hill fort & trig. Then continued round to the summit. Road noise from the M90 rather spoils the summit. Returned by the higher path.NotReallyABagger28/12/2018

An easy walk from the main car park on manicured paths. But it was probably rather better than usual because of a bit of snow cover.Gill14/12/2017

Parked near Easter Moncreiffe and walked up the large forestry tracks and then took a wee track off up to the trigpoint, we then continued picking up a few geocaches on the way and ended up in the dark on Moredun Top which according to hill bagging is Moncreiffe Hill, glad we took the wee extra hike to the top.thejackrustles09/12/2016
Parked at the small carpark at the East end of the hill where there is room for a dozen or so cars. An easy walk from there just heading up a couple of zigzags through the woods. Lots of birds around and a fine view at the summit cairn.Peterb25/11/2016
