Boleskine House was once owned by occultist Aleister Crowley and was later bought by guitarist Jimmy Page whose band, Led Zeppelin, were hit by a series of tragedies, reportedly after taking part in a Crowley inspired ritual. The house, which previously suffered a major fire in 2015, has just been acquired by London-based lawyer Kyra Readdy and property developer Keith Readdy, who have now set up a foundation to oversee its restoration.
