An very interesting building that is different from something seen on a day to day basis. There are some nice walks around the building itself. Well worth visiting although not a lot to do around the building.

quite difficult to find. dont expect too much but the design is very good. There are walks nearby. There is no inside to it but you have to admire this idea of a summerhouse. There are boards that tell you the history of the building and estate. Rough road to it and small car park.

My family visited The Pineapple on a quiet midweek afternoon. Make sure you follow the path through wrought iron gates which is quite bumpy in places so be careful. If you go the wrong way you will be driving between fields and passing farmhouses.

There is a small carpark outside the grounds and there is a metal honesty box situated in the wall for donations for the upkeep of the site.

The building itself looked magnificent in the mid day sunshine. There were only a few other visitors and people respectfully kept their distance. A few people seemed to deliberately stand right in the way so others could not get a clear shot photograph of the building from a distance but, but after 5 minutes or so they did move on allowing others to take photographs. There are information signs under the pineapple explaining the history and building itself.

The grounds had be mown and there are lots of lovely trees and plants. We walked around the lake before making a donation. A lovely visit which took about half an hour. In all I would choose to go in the week rather than at weekends as it could easily get very busy. We felt very lucky to not find it that busy which was lovely.

The road up to The Pineapple is very bumpy, be careful. The Pineapple is a lovely building. The garden is very well maintained. Perhaps the entrance way to the pineapple itself could benefit with some information about the history of the place? You can walk along to the Dunmore Mansion ruin and have a look around there. The walk is nice. The pineapple is well worth a visit, Enjoy!

The most disappointing visit so far out of the National Trust properties we've visited. It feels neglected, gardens are overgrown and full of weeds, the building itself although beautiful was covered in scaffolding. The woodland walks were all quite short and not that interesting. Wouldn't return

Visited the Pineapple twice since lockdown with our 13 and 12 year olds. Both enjoyed it. Not a lot at the Pineapple itself but good for photos. If you go through the doorway in the wall to the left of the entrance you are in a wooded area which leads to the ruined Dunmore House (head left and then right when you reach the field) - a great place to explore and our kids enjoyed taking photos of each other through windows and from ledges. There are a few dark cellars if you dare enter them! If you head out of the back of the house, cross a field and walk through the trees you reach the tiny and pretty village of Dunmore. A quaint little place with a couple of swings and a roundabout on the village green. Definitely enough to keep you entertained on a dry afternoon.

I write a blog about Scotland, been in Scotland for over 6 years and never had an experience like yesterday.
I wanted to visit the "Pineapple" for so long.
I saw online it was open to be visited and it was my only day off this week so I thought would be a nice way to spend the day...

When I got to the door I was really unsure what to do because the fence was open without any lock or anything, in fact I only had to push it a bit and it was fully opened... I noticed at the other side of the road, a Land Rover had stopped, so I decided to leave it open so they were able to enter too without getting out of the car.
I went inside the property looking for a parking space ready to enjoy a nice day out. As I coudn't find a parking space, I decided to get back out, park outside and get back into the place walking... not even 5 minutes took me to get there when I see the gate I just entered was now closed and locked by the person in the Land Rover I saw before.
I called her to ask to open again and all she did was looking and entering her car again... I was really confused and I gesticulate to make the lady come closer.
When she came I tried to explain her I didnt understand what was going on, she said that was HER PROPERTY and I can't enter it.
I replied her that when I got there, the fence was open so I just went in and she didin't say anything. She replied then that she thought I was visiting someone, so I replied if she is the owner, who am I visiting?
On your website it is stated the place is open every day with free entry and she just locked me in without telling anything. Really bad experience. Won't be back.

Lovely grounds and interesting building with history. Went during covid so only garden open. Have to keep dog on the lead

Pond at bottom was beautiful however there was rubbish and plastic seen floating around

Car park available with some spaces. Road too it wasn’t the best, lots of pot holes so watch out

Back in the days when international were limited to only the wealthy, the travellers would place a pineapple on top of their gateposts to signify their return. The 4th Earl of Dunmore, John Murray went a bit further to let everyone know that he had a bigger pineapple than everyone else, and had this folly built.

As architecture goes, the big pineapple sculpture is of the most iconic, bizarre and recognisable follies in the UK. It's a bit out of the way, but worth it if you in the area. It's not possible to enter Dunmore House, but the gardens are free to enter as are the trails around the gardens.
