Overview of Boleskine House and surrounding grounds as well as the
Loch. The orginal photograph was badly out of focus, taken by Frater Elric some time earlier than the photographs above and kindly given to me as a gift.
Boleskine cemetery, facing North, with view of Loch Ness to the
Graveyard during a heavy snow. It is said that there is an
underground tunnel which runs from the house to the kirkyard. Aleister
Crowley may have used it to pull pranks and scare off intruders. A
"wizard", one legend claims, used to perform "black magic" on the Boleskine
grounds long before the house was erected.
In part, publication of these photographs was delayed because the
original scans made by another proved to be terrible, which I could not know
at the time, having a 64-colour video card in the old CompuStein Monster.
It was not until recently that I was able to properly view these images with
Novus Computicus, a much more sophisticated computer, and better scan them
with the help of my Genius - that is to say, a Genuis ColorPage-Vivid Pro II
