From car park to west along path to top with C. Morning mist starting to clear.PeterD29/05/2018
Bus to Westhill and walked over top with some issues as I tried to avoid too much walking on pathless roads, and also due to major road building. I walked from the top to car park and on to Tyrebagger car park where a kind local gave me a lift to Blackburn from where I caught bus back to City. This saved me risking life and limb to cross dual carriageway and also a long walks along the hard shoulder to reach the bus stop nearest the car park.trimarc221/05/2018
From CP to NE of hill. Nice little hill - spoilt a bit by rubbish in CP & on hill. Good views of Aberdeen.ger23/04/2018
My last Marilyn of 2017, at sunset, with good clear views all round, making it a better walk than it might be in poorer conditions. Very urban, up a tarmac road, nasty masts, lots of dog poo and litter, and a nasty cairn. But never mind, it's a Marilyn!Gill31/12/2017

Path from Kingswells somewhat overgrown, starts near bridge at Wellside Wynd near terminus for bus route 40 from Union Street.neimcv17/09/2013
Up from the west. Path covered in dog eggs. Watch your feet on this one. Worth the horrid ascent for the war memorial.fasgadh20/11/2012
Parked at the small car park on the west side of the hill. Path fairly steep for the first ten minutes, but gets easier closer to the top. Really clear day so enjoyed looking at all the peaks inland and checking names on the war memorial.jackwesthill05/09/2012
