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

  • It took a while to find as the sat nav wanted us to to up a dead end. The drive to it was horrible. The track was horrendous and covered in pot holes so be careful with your car. However it was a stun...  more »

  • An interesting building, only visitable from the outside. Lovely walled garden with an orchard containing unusual apple trees in the middle, and a pond set up to encourage viewing. Woodland walks available as well, all for free courtesy of the National Trust for Scotland. Very small car park, and it's really a place for a dry spell, as the paths can be very muddy.
  • Google maps gives you directions to a private road that is closed. We drove up the main road a little further and found a single track road that's made for farm vehicles. This does lead you there, but you will have to stop your vehicle and walk up a path through the woods. The real way to get there is to continue down the main road a little bit further (under a mile) and there's a brown attraction sign for the Pineapple, take this road instead.
  • Very interesting building and history. Negatives are the road into it is rough and you can't go inside. I recommend it if you are in the area. Also some nice walking trails around the grounds.
  • Interesting architectural folly from 18th century set in secluded walled garden. It can only be viewed from outside however. The access road is in a shocking state (come on NTS!!). The footpath network around the site and to the charming village of Dunmore is worth exploring although the signposting is not helpful. Is the place meant to be a secret as these shortcomings will not encourage many but the confirmed outdoor types to linger?
  • Not easy to find. Not wheelchair friendly. No toilets. Nice architecture.
