SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have a site (not site collection) for which I would like to add a customized Site Master Page. When I open the site in SharePoint Designer, I see

default.master
minimal.master
v4.master

The master page that I would like to customize is nightandday.master. Do I have to go back to the containing site collection do do this?

Do NOT modify that master page directly. That is a Microsoft page and is subject to change in Service Packs and updates and could subsequently be replaced when those are applied. Make a copy of it and modify the copy then select the copy as the master page for your sub site.

Yes, if the master page available in top level site, then you have to go and modify that in the top level site.
