Old Photograph Of The Old House Of Gask Scotland

Old photograph of the old house of Gask, Perthshire, Scotland. The first mention of any dwelling house at Gask is in the record of a visit by King Edward I in 1304, but it is after the final purchase of Gask of Laurence Oliphant in 1625, that the Old House is seen inhabited; part of the building is of so much earlier date that it must have been a habitation of generations before. The ruins of the Old House, pulled down around 1800 by Laurence Oliphant, the 8th. Laird, are still to be seen. Gask House was visited by Prince Charles in 1745.
