I'm not even sure if this is the right place for this question but oh well
I'm writing a one-shot at the moment and I was wondering about the location of the lake which contains the Giant Squid.
It's not that important for my fic I'm now just curious
In the books it says students often go by the lake's shore; is it in the grounds nearby or is it the large lake where the second task is held?
The latter appears to be a fair trek away from Hogwarts.
(Perhaps that's just artistic license allowed to the director?)
Also, in the film Prisoner of Askaban there appears to be a small lake in the middle of the Forbidden Forest
(At least, I think that lake is in the Forbidden Forest. Maybe I interepreted it wrong)
Anyway, any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
