The series currently comprises nine books, all in various stages of completion:

Most of the characters in the novels are based on place names in the Perth and Kinross region of Scotland, many of them close to the tiny village of Findo Gask.

The Bridge of Gaur is a hamlet in west Perthshire. It lies south east of a bridge that crosses the River Gaur before entering the western end of Loch Rannoch. The elegant three-arched bridge crossing the Gaur was built in 1838 by Sir Neil Menzies to commemorate the accession of Queen Victoria.

The River Gaur leaves Loch Laidon on Rannoch Moor and heads east from Rannoch Station through Loch Eigheach to Loch Rannoch where the open waters stretch ten miles long to the village of Kinloch Rannoch at its eastern end. It enters Loch Rannoch at the River Gaur bridge and receives enroute the Abhainn Duibhe, Allt Chomraidh and Allt Chaldar.
