Earl asks to keep graffiti mural on historic castle

  • 30 August 2011

The Earl of Glasgow is asking if he can keep a graffiti mural on his family's castle.

The work was done by four Brazilian artists on Kelburn Castle in Largs, Ayrshire, as a temporary exhibit.

The Earl, Patrick Boyle, has now written to Historic Scotland to see if he can get permission to make it a permanent feature of the 13th century castle.

The mural is made up of pictures of colourful animals and strange scenes.
