Black magic ruin Boleskine House placed on a list of historic buildings under threat
A REMOTE ruin once owned by a notorious occultist dubbed "the wickedest man in the world" has been placed on a list of historic buildings under threat.

Boleskine House, which sits on the south-east shore of Loch Ness, was reduced to a burnt-out shell when a fierce blaze ripped through the property in 2015.

It was previously the home of infamous "black magician" Aleister Crowley, who scandalised British society in the early 20th century through his experiments with sex, drugs and the occult.

The C-listed manor was later bought by Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, who said: "Strange things have happened in that house which have nothing to do with Crowley. The bad vibes were already there."

Historic Environment Scotland confirmed Boleskine House had now been placed on the Buildings at Risk Register, a comprehensive database of architecturally or historically important structures considered under threat.

A spokesman said: “Boleskin House was added to the Buildings at Risk Register as it is now at high risk following fire damage and exposure.

“Inclusion on the Register highlights that this is an interesting and unique structure that we are at risk of losing altogether.”

Born into a wealthy English family in 1875, Aleister Crowley become one of the most notorious figures of his day, deliberately flouting social norms and claiming to be an expert in black magic.

He founded the religion of Thelema – best known for its central philosophy “do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law” – and even proclaimed himself a prophet entrusted with guiding humanity into a new aeon.

His “Abbey of Thelema” on Sicily became the focus of lurid tales of black magic ceremonies during which participants were made to drink the blood of a sacrificed cat.

After the death of one young follower – which was variously blamed on drinking cat’s blood or contaminated water – Crowley was expelled from Italy.

He bought Boleskine House in 1899, believing it to be the perfect location for dark rituals aimed at summoning demons.
