This is certainly *not*

This is certainly *not* Chanterelle, which never has these red-edged gills.

Thank you for your ID help, the area is peaty, but not all wet, only in pockets, its open and next to a loch.

Omphalina or Lichenophalia?

It looks as though there is a granular lichen thallus below the fruit bodies. I wonder whether this is Lichenomphalia umbellifera. I'm not sure about the red gill margins though. Perhaps age or even a parasitic fungus. I'll investigate and suggest an ID if I find anything.

Ah ...

I hadn't scrolled down and seen your comment, Dave, when I added my revision.

Yes, the darkened gill edges are just an age/drying effect.

Should look at Alan's

Should look at Alan's website, there are some amazing photos of lichens on there.
