Although there is no birth record on Scotlands People for Robert (b circa 1816), there are 2 records for a James McNair 1810 & a Peter McNair 1812 with parents Walter McNair & Agnes Taylor. Both births in Alloa. High probability that they are Robert's parents.

The death index for Robert McNair 1885 has his father as Wm McNair

There is this tree on familysearch which goes back much farther on the Snaddon line but does not shed any more light on Robert McNair's parents.

https://www.familysearch.org/tree/pedigree/landscape/99HX-27P

The tree actually goes back to the Plantagenets

Thanks Kloumann, What a large Family Tree way back to 0470, interesting to note that the list goes back to Wales. Thanks a lot, so good bedtime reading.
