The remains of a home that was once owned by the infamous Satanist Aleister Crowley have been put up for sale, along with over 22 acres of surrounding land.

Boleskine House, which was partially destroyed by a major fire in 2015 and now in ruins, is said to be where the occultist performed his ceremonial magic and black magic rituals.

The property is located on the south-east side of Loch Ness near Foyers in the Scottish Highlands. It was later owned by musician Jimmy Page, of Led Zeppelin.

Although large parts of the house have been destroyed, the building and land has been put up for sale. The selling agent Galbraiths are accepting offers in excess of £500,000, they hope that a buyer will choose to restore the B listed Georgian property to its former splendour.

Crowley bought the house from the Fraser family in 1899 and performed dark rituals at the property up until 1913. The remote house was the ideal location for Crowley's rituals, as he believed that "the first essential is a house in a more or less secluded situation."

It was here that he performed a series of rituals known as the Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage, the purpose of the ritual was to invoke your Guardian Angel. The process takes over six months to complete, but part way through Crowley was called away to Paris.

It's said that because of his hasty departure, he never banished the demons he had summoned as part of the ritual, leading many to believe that Boleskine House is cursed.

If a curse doesn't put you off by the property, then you should probably know that it's said that the house was built on the site of the ruins of a 10th century church that burnt to the ground during a service, killing all the congregation inside. So, Boleskine is quite likely to be haunted too.
