The Pineapple, Dunmore Park, Airth
Sometimes referred to as the Dunmore Pineapple, it was built by the 4th Earl of Dunmore, John Murray, in 1761, perhaps as an extravagant summerhouse or as symbol that he had returned from the Americas, where pineapples symbolised welcome. The Pineapple was restored in the 1970s after it had become run down and vandalised. It is a Category A Listed Building. LinkExternal link.
