Filmmaker Fabrizio Federico tours Aleister Crowley's Boleskine House

Hanging out in the notorious old pent house Boleskine.
The vibes in the place are unreal. I took a chair home, would have been a shame to see it ruined. It's like stepping into a void, especially the back room, black ooze drips from the taps and there's a sulfor scent mixed with weed in the house. Back of the house you can see the mountain scene that was used in the Song Remains the Same.
