History Of Highfield House
The grounds on which Elgin Community Surgery now stands was in olden times the property of Clan Dunbar of Northfield and Duffus. In the years either side of A.D 1390 - when the Wolf of Badenoch burned half of Elgin including the Cathedral and St Giles Kirk to the ground these Dunbars ruled as constables of Elgin Castle and representatives of the Kings of Scotland in the province of Moray. Centuries later on this spot the 6th Baronet of Northfield Archibald Dunbar built Northfield House around the year 1818.
This is the 3 storey building attached to the Community Surgery which faces South Street. In 1871 Northfield House was renamed Highfield House when it was bought out by Alexander Cameron, Lord Provost of Elgin between 1869 and 1875.
