Findo Gask sign on the A9

Scotbands

Bands F

 The imagination of several Scottish bands have been captured by this intriguing A9 sign. An early Christian chapel in Findoc's name was built here. The 'gask' is the tapering end of that ridge. Maybe neither here nor there from a band's point of view - it's just a great name !
