For the second time Aleister Crowley’s summer home of Boleskin has been caught fire and burned by mysterious means. The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service believe the fire was set intentionally by vandals and are appealing to the local community for any answers as to who may have started the blaze. The house caught fire previously in 2015 and was sold earlier this year.
Crowley owned the property between 1899 and 1913. It was later owned by Jimmy Page from the bad Led Zeppelin.
With suspects still at large and the occult leanings of the former owners, it is quite imaginable that the blaze was possibly set during a ritual at the house. If the blaze was set during an incantation or ritual, what were the participants trying to summon and did they succeed?
