  • The song title could be a reference to 'Buckfast', colloquially "Buckie", a tonic wine infamous in Scotland for its potency and extremely high caffeine content. 'High' in this context would be a refrence to being intoxicated.[1]
  • Alternatively, the title may be a reference (like "The Beach At Redpoint") to a real place in Scotland; Buckie is a small fishing town in the county of Moray. Scottish schools are like their American Counterparts known as High Schools (Secondary in England). It's a possibility that they or friends/relatives may have attended this school, influencing the title. More nostalgia for their childhood?[2] Coincidentally, perhaps, there is a café near Buckie High School called Sandisons.[3]
