The Dunmore Pineapple
Dunmore, by Airth, Stirling District


The Dunmore Pineapple, Dunmore, by Airth, Stirlingshire, Scotland

Yes, it IS a forty foot high stone pineapple on top of a building.

Built in 1761 as part of a garden retreat the building originally had hothouses along the front wall in which pineapples were grown, before the easy access to supplies in the likes of Tesco and Asda that can be bought today. And in cans as well, of course.

When the Scots build follies they don't hang about.

Part of the Dunmore Pineapple can be rented out as a holiday home.

“ Where did you go on holiday this year ? Where ? A what ? Look, it was a perfectly sensible question…”
