"FINDOGASK, (or Gask), a parish and post village in the E. district of county Perth, Scotland, 6 miles W.S.W. of Perth. It lies along the N. bank of the river Earne. The surface consists of a fertile soil, with a considerable proportion of plantation and marsh. This parish is in the presbytery of Auchterarder, and synod of Perth and Stirling, in the patronage of the crown. The minister has a stipend of £155. The church was built in 1800. Gask is the seat of the chief landowner. A Roman causeway, constructed of stone, 20 feet in width, runs through the parish, and terminates at either extremity in a camp. There are also small stations noticeable at intervals along the way; one of these, the Witchknowe, is said to have been a spot selected for the burning of the votaries of the black art. Building stone and slate are quarried here. Salmon is plentiful."
