The Dunmore Pineapple - 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 fresh supplies in the likes of Tesco and Asda (other supermarkets are available) that can be bought today. And in cans as well, of course.

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

From ground level looking on to the entrance.

These ground-level photos were taken from about 16 feet (5 metres) off the ground to prevent the bulge in the slope in front of the building hiding the front step. You can see the problem in the top photo.

For those with an interest, 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…”
