This is the plan of a proposed clubhouse for the Nairn Curling Club, at Ledgehill Road, Nairn. The architect is P. McFarlane Cram of Albert Street, Nairn, and the plan is dated December 1907.

Plans for new buildings or alterations to existing ones had to be submitted to the Dean of Guild court for approval. A guild was a group of merchants who were influential citizens in the burgh, and their president, known as the Dean, had a role similar to that of a magistrate.
