Eastern Argus Semi-Weekly, November 11, 1831. The word ghoul derives from a graveyard-dwelling monster in Arabian folklore.The female form is ghouleh—not to be confounded with the even more terrifying Goulet. But Boleskine cemetery is a pretty distinguished address for such critters: Subsequent habitués of this Scottish boneyard include occultist Aleister Crowley, who appointed Boleskine manor the Mecca of his religion, Thelema, and Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page, who owned the joint from the 1970s through the early '90s. I'm betting Ozzy must have made a pilgrimage there at some point too. Dio too, for that matter.
