Dunmore Pineapple

Scotland’s Weirdest building?

There’s nowhere quite like the Pineapple, which is why so many people flock to Dunmore every year to visit this truly unique building. The Pineapple rests within a walled garden, with apple trees to the front and stunning woodland surrounding. Built by the 4th Earl of Dunmore in 1761 as a summerhouse, the site is owned by Scottish National Trust and was restored and is managed by the Landmark Trust.

You can visit the site all year round and parking is found just outside the entrance to the walled garden. It is also possible to hire the Pineapple as a holiday home. Vist the sites below to find out more.
