Craigdarroch Castle: Victoria's Legendary Landmark

Craigdarroch was built between 1887-1890 for Robert Dunsmuir, a Scottish immigrant who made his fortune from Vancouver Island coal. This legendary Victorian mansion, built on a hill overlooking the City of Victoria announced to the world that Robert Dunsmuir was the richest and most important man in Western Canada.

The photographs below were taken during the night (9pm or so). The beautifully lit castle was really amazing!
