in the magical world, Hogwarts School exists somewhere in the Scottish Highlands, and the reason it has never been discovered is because it is invisible to Muggles. But Potter fans can get close to its borders, starting with a place called Loch Arcaig, which is located a few miles from Hogwarts, and became the resting place for Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon, You can also visit Loch Archaig Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005) during the scene where Harry Potter, Cedric Diggory (Robert Pattinson,, Victor Krum (Stanislav Yanevsky) and Fleur Delacour (clemens poésy) are about to dive into the depths of the Great Lakes.
