Trending since the 18th Century…

We love this extreme and elaborate use of the Pineapple, seen below at this 18th Century Summer House, aptly named ‘The Pineapple’ in Dunmore, Central Scotland. The House gained its Pineapple top after Lord Dunmore returned home from Virginia in 1777 and wanted a prominent way to mark his return!

Today you can actually stay at this beautiful Landmark and visit its gardens through the National Trust for Scotland website:
