Boleskine House/Cemetery

last year my partner and i were driving around loch ness when we stumbled across a spooky remote cemetery, so we got out of the car and took pictures etc... because we're interested in things like that ๐Ÿ™‚

anyway, we later read about aleister crowley and found it amazing that such a significant person lived in boleskine house across from the cemetery as we had no idea of it's history

a year later we visited scotland again and had to take another look at the cemetery and the house now we knew about aleister... i took a picture inside the building in the cemetery and noticed a hexagram above the fireplace which i thought was great. when i searched google i found that we were not the only people to be aware of the hexagram but there weren't many explanations about it. i would love to hear more info if you can help us? i.e. who drew it? how long has it been there? etc

i have also read stuff about jimmy page from led zep living at the house!

we would very much appreciate any info you have on the cemetery and the house...

thanks

Welcome to LAShTAL.COM...

Simply by using the 'Search LAShTAL.COM' menu option you'll find dozens of references on this site alone to the House, its Context and its Environs.

I suggest you start with these references, then the Articles including accounts of visits to the House, the Downloads with the Deeds to the property, and, finally, the extensive images in the Galleries, which include photographs of the cemetery, hut, house and vistas.

Yes. Its a beautiful place.
I visited there over xmas. I have some photos if you would like the link to them.

I tried to do some detective work to find out who ownes the place, its not easy but I did ask the local postman but by the nature of his job there is some confidentiality, he did let a few things slip though. I know a film maker who is interested in interviewing the owners but all his letters have failed.
The postman did say he gets a lot of odd mail for that house, the owners are probably sick of it.

They are indeed.

And this is a good point to remind visitors to this site that Boleskine House is a private family home these days. There is no evidence to suggest that the current owners are in the least bit interested in Aleister Crowley.

LAShTAL.COM will publish no more modern photographs of the property without the approval of the owners.

And I'll take a very dim view of any member of this site that chooses to ignore this appeal to leave the current residents alone!

thanks for your replies

in all honesty, i'm more interested in the paranormal than magick. i have read lots of web sites about aleister, but the volume of information is overwhelming.

i'm not overly interested in the house so rest assured i will not pester the owners at all. i am more curious about the cemetery...

i have attempted to search for answers to my questions but without success i.e. what's the hut for? what was it used for in the past? why hasn't it been knocked down if it's disused? why are the doors bricked up but not the window? who drew the hexagram? is there an underground tunnel to the house? did aleister use the hut? etc etc etc

however, the more research i have done, the more i have been disappointed ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

i now suspect that the hexagram may be the result of people such as this...

i hope not

That is the kind of thing I would not want to encourage, as as already been stated.
The house gets lots of unwanted visiters eeger for a glimps of god knows what. there isnt a lot to see to be honest.
I do hope that in the future this house is owned by someone who is interested in its history, but even then I doubt they would tollerate this kind of thing.

At least the idiots involved in this sort of behaviour have been good enough to include their faces in the photographs. Oh and the name of the "photographer" - one Robert Gordon of Inverness - in the copyright notice (!) on several images.

It's the picture of the group within feet of the house that I find most disturbing: imagine waking up in the middle of the night to see this bunch of cretins walking around your isolated residence.

it's annoying to see people treat the area with no respect. it really irritated me when i saw those pictures and videos. did someone take their web site out?! because it won't load this morning. seems a bit of a coincidence ๐Ÿ™‚

can you help me to answer my questions/curiosity about the cemetery? if not, can you point me in the right direction? i.e. a person or web site?

thanks
