The Boleskine House Foundation has the sole aim to raise money to help restore Boleskine House to its original historical condition. Boleskine House is a famous heritage B-listed estate with a rich history. Erected in the late 18th-century by the Fraser family, the house was later owned by spiritual thinker Aleister Crowley and later Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, among many others. In 2015, Boleskine House suffered a devastating fire, rendering it in "ruinous condition" according to the Buildings at Risk Register for Scotland. As of 31 July, 2019, Boleskine House has now been the victim of a malicious arson attempt and the remainder of the roof has burnt down, rendering the building into further ruin.
Upon complete restoration, The Boleskine House Foundation will place the house in a charitable foundation and open the estate up to the public with the intention to further engage culture, history, heritage and education through the enjoyment of its surrounding gardens and guided tours of the house, along with hosted events that promote the estate's history and legacy.
This campaign aims to raise funds primarily for initial stages to begin restoring Boleskine House, including surveys, roof replacement, and external repair of the building so that the structure is sound and water proof.
