Probably best known wordlwide as the home of The Graffiti Project, 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 the Castle.

On a building steeped in rural conservative perceptions, this bold and shocking artistic statement received huge media attention, while challenging the public’s understanding of both urban graffiti art and the British institution the building represents.

In 1066, the De Boyvilles came to mainland Britain from Normandy, France and acquired the land above the Kel burn in 1143 from their cousin, Hugh de Moville, a powerful Baron who was Great Constable of Scotland to King David I.
