Scotland is a stunning country of majestic mountains, lochs and glens. But it is also full of character and quirkiness. We recently came across The Pineapple just outside Falkirk. It is what they call a 'folly'....an expensive ornamental building with no practical purpose. I think its anything but...how many buildings can make people smile at first sight?
The Pineapple was built in 1761 by the 4th Earl of Dunmore taking inspiration from his time in Virginia. The property is now owned by the National Trust and you can actually book to stay here...I believe it houses up to four people.
The Pineapple is open all year and is a great place for a little picnic and countryside walks. As for Ed and I, we just walked around for a little, taking in the surroundings, braving the cold October air and taking silly photos, before driving on to sunny Glasgow.
Have you been to a 'folly' before? And did it amuse you too? Ann x
