This is a great place to take kids . The grounds are just so wonderfull to explore and to walk in. The Pinapple itself is so unique and well worth the time to visit . Great for dog walkers too.

Don’t attempt to drive, the road or rather long farm track is in a shocking state of repair and is strewn with huge unavoidable potholes. When we finally made it to the car park we found it to be full as it holds only 6...More

We remembered visiting this place in the autumn of 1984. Access wasn’t a problem then and the gardens were well tended. The Pineapple itself was amazing. This time we could hardly find the place itself. Well signed from the main road it then deteriorated into...More

Lovely walk from Airth to this amazing structure set in an old walled garden. A spectacular folly. Lovely woodland walks around the grounds.

Quirky folly and worth a visit in the area. Run by National Trust for Scotland - only requests a donation to enter. There is no building to go in but it's a pleasant 20 -30 mins stroll around.

Worth the effort of finding it. Nice walks surround the estate. A Mecca for dog walkers. Child friendly environment.

An amazing building, well worth a quick visit visit, even in Winter. There is no access from main road but a rough dirt track some mile before will get you there.

Well worth a visit as it is such an unusual design. Very interesting from the outside and inside. If the weather is kind, a nice area to wander around.

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.

To reach the Pineapple by train is difficult unless you take the train to Falkirk and then a taxi which will be expensive. The pineapple is not easily accessible unless you have a car. As a private touring company (Carnegie... More
