If you’re looking for a good excursion from Edinburgh in Scotland, Falkirk is a great choice. This city is located only half an hour away from the capital and has plenty of fantastic attractions, including the largest equestrian statues in the world and the only boat wheel in the world, not to mention a few filming locations from Outlander as well as the most curious folly in Scotland. Here’s a guide on how to spend 48 hours in Falkirk.
As far as unusual architecture goes, the Dunmore Pineapple just might be the strangest building in Scotland. It’s also rather hard to find, especially using Google Maps. On the suggestion of Visit Falkirk, I made it out to the Pineapple House to see just what was so special.
