The Geo Quiz is all about graffiti but it isn't where you might expect to find it. It's a 13th century castle in Scotland that's been tagged. The castle's owners actually commissioned some Brazilian street artists to transform their castle's walls and turrets. The now brightly-decorated castle looks out on the waters of the Firth of Clyde, on the southwest coast of Scotland. This is a rugged and hilly region that serves as a gateway to the Scottish Highlands.
