The Pineapple

Falkirk | Airth | Historic building | ★★

[The Pineapple]

There are no prizes for guessing how this building got its name. Beyond a quick photo snap there's not much to see here - the grounds (including walled garden) are simple rather than spectacular, and the inside of the 1761 building is in use as holiday cottages. The lack of an entry fee reflects this. But this is one of the UK's quirkiest buildings, so it must be seen.

[The building's "crown" had no purpose other than as an extravagant birthday present for the estate owner's wife
