In Scotland, the Survey of Scottish Witchcraft (www.shc.ed.ac.uk/Research/witches), has details of nearly 4000 people tried from 1563-1736 for witchcraft, with evidence for many cases gathered by local kirk sessions. For the story of the Forfar Witches visit www.angusheritage.com/People/AngusLives/The-Forfar-Witches.aspx, whilst a look at witches in Fife can be found at www.thefifepost.com/history/witches/.

A study of 17th century witchcraft in the county of Flintshire is online at the National Library of Wales website at www.llgc.org.uk/index.php?id=witchcraftcourtofgrearsessi. In Ireland, the last ever witch trail was that of the Islandmagee witches in County Antrim, who were convicted in my home town of Carrickfergus - you'll find the story at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islandmagee_witch_trial.
