The Parish Manse, Manse Road, Nairn, was designed, in a Gothic style, by William Mackintosh of Inverness. It was built in 1898.

The plans are part of the records of the Nairn Dean of Guild Court. These courts originated in mediaeval times. A guild was a group of merchants, who were influential citizens in the burgh. Their president, known as the Dean, had a role similar to that of a magistrate. The courts were responsible for enforcing building regulations in the burgh, a function now carried out by local authority building control departments. Plans for new buildings or alterations to existing ones had to be submitted to the Dean of Guild for approval
