Who said castles need to be somber colored stone buildings with grey and brown exterior? Ask the Earl of Glasgow, who had his transformed into the brightest in all of Scotland. The Kelburn Castle, near Fairlie, 35 miles west of Glasgow, has been the family home of the Boyles since its construction in the 13th century, making the castle the oldest in Scotland to have been continuously inhabited by the same family.

 

In 1703, the Parliament of Scotland created the title of “Earl of Glasgow” for the then owner David Boyle, who was one of the commissioners who negotiated the Treaty of Union uniting England and Scotland into Great Britain. Since then the Kelburn Castle has been the home of a long line of Earls the family has produced.
