Graffiti Project on Kelburn Castle in Scotland

Kelburn is prominently located on the west coast of Scotland, 35 miles west of Glasgow, overlooking the sea. Parts of the building are in need of repair, but funds have recently been secured to begin an extensive restoration, that includes the removal of the external render, allowing the opportunity to use the present surface as a vast temporary canvas. This has inspired the idea for this once in a lifetime project and an opportunity to be part of a truly unique and original event that has world wide media potential. It is thought to be the oldest castle in Scotland to have been continuously inhabited by the same family.

Nice way of destroying a beautiful old castle. Idiots....

The west wing of the castle is due to be resurfaced. This graffiti is not a permanent fixture. The graffiti project has helped generate great interest in Kelburn castle. The rise in visitors to the castle helps pay for ongoing much needed maintenance thus keeping it as Scotland's oldest continuously inhabited family castle.

You should go check it out and chat to the family before passing judgement on the integrity of this project.
