Lackdhu is nestled in Glen Oichill, a wee group of crofts at Lackdhu Station near the banks of the River Spey, Scotland. The Boharm name, Bucharin, Buchar, Boharme, Boharm, is said, to signify in Gaelic “the bow around the hill.”

Lackdhu Croft was located near a natural spring with healing properties and resident Faeries, a Gallows Pot nearby was handy for local witches.

Auchroisk distillerywhisky distillery in Banffshirespeyside Scotland. It was established after Dorie's Well was discovered and found to have water similar to the water used by the Glen Spey distillery, which was used by Justerini & Brooks to produce malt whisky for their blends. The well's water was used to produce a test batch of whisky at Glen Spey distillery, and was approved, which led to the start of construction of the Auchroisk distillery at the site of the well in 1972 to produce whisky for the J&B blend. Production started in 1974.

 

Magical Speyside - Harry Potter Hogwarts Mystery

The mystery of Hogwarts location comes to Strathspey...

(Extract from...) ...that leaves us with Hogwarts being in one of three places. It could be in the West Highlands, which extend all the way up the west side of Scotland from Loch Lomond north to Sutherland. It could be in the Grampian Highlands/Cairngorms/Strathspey area, which occupies a swathe of east-central Scotland. Or it could be in the Galloway Hills in the south-west.

map_hogwarts_locations-harry-potterHarry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, it is stated that Sirius Black has been sighted in Dufftown and Hermione replies "Dufftown? That's not far from here." Dufftown is in the Cairngorms and if we accept this statement from the film, that would place Hogwarts in the Cairngorms too....
