HDR treatment,

Craigdarroch Castle
Victoria BC Canada
Situated on Vancouver Island,

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 (Craigdarroch means “rocky, oak place” in Gaelic) announced to the world that Robert Dunsmuir was the richest and most important man in Western Canada. He died in 1889 leaving his entire estate to his wife Joan who lived in the Castle until her death in 1908. The immense fortune of the Dunsmuir family is reflected in the four floors of exquisite stained glass windows, intricate woodwork and fabulous Victorian era furnishings.

    Well done Annie! The treatment is awesome. Jed and I went here last weekend and I took a few outside shots, but nothing as wonderful as this. Very cool place. We’ve been to Victoria so many times and I’ve always wanted to see this castle. We didn’t have time for the tour – maybe next time. ♥ Cheers, S.

  • Many thanks, very much appreciated, its worth the tour it is set out beautifully, hugs Ann
