There is no written record of when Kelburn Castle was first built, but it is thought to be have been around 1143. The Castle enveloped the stone tower in 1581 so the two periods are now difficult to distinguish from the outside. In 1700, the 1st Earl doubled the size of the building by adding a William-and-Mary style mansion house onto the Castle at a slight angle.
The castle’s graffiti project was a unique idea designed to take graffiti art away from its urban context and place it on a permanent display on the walls of a historical castle. Kelburn brought together four of the world’s leading graffiti artists from Brazil to work alongside Scottish talent, to create a unique burst of colour, embracing the walls and turrets of the south side of Kelburn Castle.
Clearly, the risky project was definitely worth it!
