Moncrieffe Hill, Perth

Path information

Most of the main trails are on stone-surfaced forest tracks or narrower, firm paths, but these can be muddy at times. Gradients are generally moderate but also steep in places, especially up to the lip of Moredun fort.  Please allow at least 1.5 hours (preferably longer) to make a circuit of the sculpture trail.

Facilities and events

  • Enjoy the views south from the top of the path over Strathearn and to the Ochil and Lomond Hills.
  • There are sculptures beside the trail along the green and white waymarked routes in the north-west part of the wood. These routes also take you close to the two hill forts.
  • Woodland Trust - Moncrieffe Hill
  • Maps of adjacent path networks
  • The nearest public toilets are in Perth.

Getting here

  • On foot: A minor road encircles much of the wood and is quiet and good for careful cycling and walking, but has no pavement.
  • Public transport: Visit Traveline Scotland to plan your journey
  • Car park: To access the northern entrance and main Tay Car Park, from Perth turn east off the A912 Edinburgh Road (by the M90 motorway ramp) onto Rhynd Road. Follow the minor road for roughly one mile, and car park is on the right.                                                                                                                                                                                                             
  • To access the southern entrance and smaller Earn Car Park, from the A912 at Bridge of Earn, take the minor road that runs east near the bridge over the River Earn. Follow this for roughly one mile, then turn up track to the left, signposted for Moncreiffe Hill. After about half a mile there is limited car parking at the side of the track close to the wood entrance.
