"I well remember the time when, on a particularly dangerous trek along the banks of the River Clyde in Glasgow, Scotland, in search of the fabled Weetimorousbeastie, I chanced upon a snickering cluster of Imps."
Gilderoy Lockhart, Marauding with Monsters[src]

The Weetimorousbeastie is a fabled creature that allegedly lives on the banks of River Clyde, in Scotland.[1] In Marauding with Monsters, Gilderoy Lockhart wrote about his adventures along the banks of the River Clyde in search of the Weetimorousbeastie, ending up finding (and defeating) an Imp colony instead.[1] The veracity of these events is doubtful, given Lockhart's theft of other people's achievements.

Behind the scenes

"Weetimorousbeastie" is a reference to the Scots poem To a Mouse, on Turning Her Up in Her Nest with the Plough written by Robert Burns in 1785, and was included in the Kilmarnock volume. Indeed, it is a digest of the first verse of the poem: "Wee, sleekit, cow'rin, tim'rous beastie," which in Standard English means: "Small, crafty, cowering, timorous little beast,".
