Next time you're planning a visit to Scotland, make sure you include a trip to The Pineapple, near Airth in Stirlingshire. This bizarre fruit-inspired building is a must day out for the whole family!
Entry is free to the grounds and garden of this fascinating building that dates back to the 1700s. Pineapples were first grown in Scotland in 1731 and were a favoured exotic fruit.
After admiring the building, you can take a walk around the walled garden and then into the peaceful surrounding woodland. Catch glimpses of newts, frogs and lots of other wildlife.
So, the next time you're nearby why not pack a picnic and enjoy the architectural delights of The Pineapple. There's full wheelchair and buggy access so this is truly a day out for the whole family.
