The Pineapple

Bizarre fruit-inspired building set within a woodland full of wildlife

Planning your visit

We want you to enjoy your visit to the Pineapple – your safety is our priority. This means we’ve had to make some changes so that we can keep everyone safe. Please read our Guide on what to expect before you set off.


The Pineapple folly is not open to visitors but the walled garden and surrounding grounds are open all year.

For more information about planning your visit, please see the drop-down facilities below or our frequently asked questions.

If you’d like to speak to us, we can be contacted by telephone: 01383 880359 (Culross Palace).

Facilities & access

We have an ongoing programme of accessible content development. Detailed accessibility guides for the most visited Trust places are available on our Accessibility pages as well as links to useful resources.

We’d love you to visit the Euan’s Guide website to review the accessibility of Trust places and tell us (and others) what’s good and where we need to do better.

An all-ability path leads from the car park to the pond viewing platform.

Parking is free for members of the National Trust for Scotland.

Limited car parking is available – please take care on the access road.

Pack a picnic – there are several lovely al fresco eating spots. 

After admiring the sheer eccentricity of the folly and its many architectural delights, take a walk in the walled garden, where an orchard of crab apple trees has been planted, and then head into the surrounding woodland. 

Enjoy a peaceful stroll around the pond and onto the viewing platform, where you may catch a glimpse of the rare great crested newt as well as palmate newts and common frogs.
