Umm, I guess the subject is kinda self-explainatory, but it's listed under Scotland here and I was wondering how we know that. NeebsLucas11 23:53, December 30, 2009 (UTC)Gabey

"Hogwarts ... Logically it had to be set in a secluded place, and pretty soon I settled on Scotland in my mind." Fraser, L., An interview with J.K.Rowling, Mammoth, London, 2000. ISBN 0-7497-4394-8. pp 20-21. Additionally, Rowling mentions that a nest of acrumantulas has been rumoured to exist in a forest in Scotland in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (real). There is an annotation by Harry or Ron that says "confirmed by Harry Potter and Ron Weasley". This is thought to refer to their meeting with Aragog in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. --  Seth Cooper  owl post! 00:33, December 31, 2009 (UTC)
