Boleskin House is situated on the southeast shores of Loch Ness close to the village of Foyers. The house dates from the second half of the eighteenth century, and its history was unremarkable until it was bought just over a century later by a man called Aleister Crowley.
Had Aleister Crowley lived three hundred years before, his activities would have had to have been conducted in the utmost secrecy or he would have surely met a premature and exceedingly unpleasant end. As it was, Mr Crowley took a certain pride in the fact that he was proclaimed to be the 'wickedest man in the world'.
He was known to practise black magic and to be obsessed with the Satanic and profane. His house was the scene of drug- and alcohol-fuelled orgies, sacrifice and satanic ritual.
He died in 1947. Boleskin House is said to be troubled by evil spirits and poltergeist activity, and both the house and the graveyard nearby - rumoured to be connected by a secret underground tunnel - are said to be sites that witches haunt. The eerie atmosphere that surrounds die place and the knowledge of the lifestyle of its one-time occupant make this hardly surprising.
