Graffiti Castle

The Earl of Glasgow, Patrick Boyle, wants to keep the graffiti mural which a team of Brazilian artists painted on Kelburn Castle in 2007 at a cost of £20,000. North Ayrshire Council granted permission for the graffiti, providing it remained for no more than three years. Author and designer Tristan Manco has named it as one of the Top Ten examples of street art. It looks like a tawdry Disneyland show to me. Historic Scotland will have a say.

Yes, I'm sure that's the reason the earl wants to keep it, but it is an eyesore.
