Long term plans to restore and maintain a 13th century castle in Scotland took a lively turn when Lord Kelburn, Earl of Glasgow, whose family has maintained the castle for 800 years, brought world class graffiti artists from Brazil to work alongside local talent creating a brilliant, psychedelic mural on a concrete sheathed section of the castle scheduled to be restored. Given temporary permission by historic preservation authorities to so lavishly adorn their castle, the residents of Kelburn Castle are currently seeking an extension. A popular venue for music concerts and festivals the mural at Kelburn Castle has itself become an premier attraction.
