Caesar's mushroom?

The colours looks more orange than red, like Caesar's mushroom. Although it's not, so as far as I know, been recorded in Britain. So probably more likely to be Fly agaric, especially with a locality that far north!

var aureola

Amanita muscaria var aureola has a more pale orange colour and no scales on the cap but this is not recognised by many because rain and age can change the look of a common or garden muscaria so much.
Ceasars mushroom is restricted to warmer climates and has a large volval bag which cannot be seen in the photo.
