I think it's the Cuckoo Flower also know as Ladies Smock Brian.

Thanks guys, good to find out what it is  :) here's another one from the banks of loch Stenness, any idea what this one is? :)


Looks like another member of the cabbage family.

I'll offer Common Scurvygrass as an opening gambit :crap.



I think it is indeed  scurvygrass, the characteristic rounded  glossy leaves are mostly hidden by that other plant  with the finely divided foliage. This plant  has a huge range, sea level  to over 3000 ft. You?ll find  it flowering in July in high gullies  around Caenlochan and Ben Lawers.


Col,  ivy leaved crowfoot is a Rununculus (buttercup). Rununculus flowers are made up of many spirally arranged parts. The flowers above are simple crucifers.
