I see where you are coming from with the Three Sisters of Glencoe, but not there yet.

Nice idea but sadly not. despite the Scottish play you need to look south of the border near a town King David of Scotland set up court.
The first part of the clue is a reference to witches in general. The second part is specific to the name of the hill.

I am quaking with excitement to see if the spirit moves anyone about this one.

Just to confirm, Pendle Hill was correct.
