Craigflower Manor and Lands is the home base of the Victoria Highland Games Association. Owned by the Province of British Columbia and leased to the VHGA, this historic home sits on a 3-acre waterfront property about a 10-minute drive from downtown Victoria.

The Manor and Lands was originally part of a large farm which was managed by Kenneth McKenzie, an emigrant from Haddington, Scotland, and the first farm bailiff on Vancouver Island. Read more about the history of the Craigflower farm and the McKenzie family. Learn more about living and working at Craigflower farm in the nineteenth century.

With funding from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, the provincial Heritage Branch and the VHGA, the sidebuilding of the the Manor has been renovated to provide an interpretive centre and two new washrooms for improved handicapped and public access. This renovation was completed in the spring of 2017.
