Saw this on a path at Loch Lomond. Does anybody know what this is? Thanks!

Not very knowledge about beetles, but could it be a minotaur beetle?
It is a beetle in the Minotaur family (Geotrupidae), but not actually the Minotaur, for the reasons given above. I think Anoplotrupes stercorosus is the most likely species, but I can't rule out the related ones.
