Inverallt and the garden pavilions are shown on the 1st edition map but then site named Shandon Bank. Robert Napier, the marine engineer had a summer cottage at Shandon from 1833 prior to building West Shandon (now demolished). It is possible that this may have been Napier's cottage. Inverallt Cottage to the SE of Inverallt and within the same boundary is listed separately.
