The River Earn at Findo Gask
|Council:||Perth & Kinross|
During the Second World War, units of the Polish Army were stationed at Findo Gask Airfield (now disused).
The woodlands around Findo Gask are known to be excellent sites for the collection of truffles, particularly black truffles, and truffle hunters can often be observed there during certain seasons.
Gask House was built here in 1801 designed by Richard Crichton a pupil of Robert Adam.
Gask refers to the nearby Gask Ridge. In Scottish Gaelic, a gasg is a projecting tail or strip of land. The name is shared with other local places including Nether Gask Cottage and Trinity Gask.
Findo is a reference to Fynnoga or Findoca, a saint commemorated in the area. The village was once known as Fyndogask.
