Castle Bonkers!

I live about ten minutes away from Kelburn Castle in Fairlie, which is on the outskirts of Largs in North Ayrshire, and home to Lord Glasgow. I have not visited in a while, but the fortuitous win recently of a family season ticket at a raffle saw me heading there once again on Sunday with the family in tow...

Since my last visit, there's been something of a noticeable change! Last year, the castle folk brought graffiti artists over from South America to wreak havoc on the building's exterior, for the simple reason that it needs to be replaced soon anyway with new render. I personally think the whole nation should follow suit - it's bonkers, it's brilliant and it should be a national imperative with all our great houses - have a look...!



The castle will be fully open again for the summer season from Easter. For more information, visit www.kelburnestate.com.
God bless the Scottish nobility and all who sail in them...! lol :)
