Boleskine House in top 100 haunted places in the world

Boleskine House

Some say Boleskines Lodge Aleister Crowley, born Edward Alexander Crowley, (12 October 1875 – 1 December 1947; was a British occultist, writer and mystic's former home and Jimmy Pages from Led Zepllin is very haunted by ghosts demons, angles and Crowley himself. Boleskine House was the estate of Aleister Crowley from 1899 to 1913. It is located on the South-Eastern shore of Loch Ness in Scotland. It was built in the late 18th century by Archibald Fraser.

Aleister Crowley

Crowley eventually sold the manor in order to fund the publication of The Equinox, Vol. III. However, he later alleged that the funds were stolen by the Grand Treasurer General of the Order, George MacNie Cowie. (The extensive mortgaging of the house by that time may in fact have left little funds to steal.)

From the early 1970s to well into the 1980s, Boleskine was owned by famed Led Zeppelin guitarist and Aleister Crowley enthusiast, Jimmy Page. Sections of Page's fantasy sequence in the Led Zeppelin concert film, The Song Remains the Same were filmed at night on the mountain side directly behind Boleskine House.

Boleskines Lodge Cemetery facing North, with view of Loch Ness is said to harbour man a restless soul.
