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.

Harrietfield road sign A tiny village in Glen Almond, central Perth and Kinross, Harrietfield lies to the north of the River Almond, 8 miles (13 km) northwest of Perth.

A Free Church here, closed in 1995, was the charge of John Watson (1850-1907) who wrote under the name Ian Maclaren. His book of Perthshire tales was published in 1894 and entitled 'Beside the bonnie brier bush'.

Luncarty road sign Luncarty is a village in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, approximately four miles north of Perth. It lies between the A9 to the west, and the River Tay to the east.

The present village was founded in 1752 by William Sandeman, to house workers at his bleachfields. The village formerly had a railway station, and the Perth to Inverness railway line still runs through the village.
