"The Pineapple" - Dunmore Park, Scotland - Built by John Murray in 1761 as a birthday present for his wife, Susan.

Welcome to the Pineapple! Why did Lord Dunmore build this pineapple-shaped cottage in 1761 in the middle of Scotland?One blogger opines that pineapples were something of a status symbol, emblematic, perhaps, of abundance, prosperity & hospitality in the 18th century, imported by the wealthy from the Caribbean. @ Chatsworth, there are even greenhouses specially designed for growing pineapples. The same blogger noted "The cottage is quite bijoux."

The Dunmore Pineapple is situated in Dunmore Park, approximately one kilometre northwest of Airth and the same distance south of Dunmore in the Falkirk council area, Scotland.
