The Pineapple, its a quirky place. Named after the obvious architectural feature. Its essentially a walked garden, great crested newts, Apple trees, etc. It's owned by the national Trust and they have a holiday let on site, which would be a nice location. It's actually...More

It was a lot of effort to find this quirky little garden. It wasn't worth the bother for us, but you might disagree.

Visited this structure, expecting entry and some interesting things. Unfortunately it’s in dire need of cleaning and general tidying. It’s been used for holiday rentals and isn’t anymore interesting than that. Attractive architecture and nice gardens and walks, no tearoom or gift shop. Could be...More

Hidden from view, and down a bumpy road, lies this remarkable folly. No house or interior to visit, but plenty of gardens to walk. If you enjoy unusual architecture, definitely worth a visit, but unless you are planning a picnic it's unlikely you would stay...More

One of the must visit attractions around Falkirk. Also this location is not far from either Glasgow or Edinburgh.

Visited and walk around site. No house/ building to go into as such just external folly as described. Really quite a few other Scottish Heritage sites you can see and get ‘more’ out of but if in area visit and can mark off ‘the list’.

train from Waverley to Falkirk Grahamston. Then bus F16 towards Stirling. Opp Road End is your stop but it's still about 20 minute walk to the Pineapple. Also it's not open at a weekend.
