Full description
Arguably one of the most playful and eccentric historical buildings in the UK, The Pineapple is a former summer house with an instantly recognisable fruity dome that befits its name.

Built in 1761 by John Murray, Earl of Dunmore, the summer house was thought to be a belated wedding present to his wife. Careful restoration by The Landmark Trust began in 1973 and today The Pineapple is a striking and unusual holiday let with its own private garden and two bedrooms, making it a great choice for a family break in central Scotland in a unique heritage building.

Set over two storeys, the layout of the property is somewhat different from the norm; the double and twin bedroom that comprise the sleeping quarters are actually stone bothies that were built either side of the Pineapple itself, originally to house the gardeners.  Access to these is from outside, via the main living accommodation only.  To the rear, the ground level is slightly elevated and benefits from a private garden, where steps lead into the beautiful octagonal room that sits inside the Pineapple section of the house.

Located just over one hour's drive from Edinburgh, the surrounding environment here is one of wildlife, woodlands and rivers, making it a peaceful and rural idyll yet close to the major Scottish cities for an unforgettable and varied holiday.
