This plan, drawn for Sir Alexander Dunbar, shows additions and improvements to the farm steading of Merryton on the Boath Estate. Its features include cow byres, a bothy, turnip house and a hay loft under a roof made of corrugated iron and slate. Plans for new buildings or alterations to existing ones had to be submitted to the Dean of Guild for approval, and this plan is signed 'William Innes D.G.'

The following year, in 1899, Sir Alexander played the first shot on the new golf course for which he gave some of his land, the Nairn Dunbar course
