Its rather difficult to see

Its rather difficult to see but have agreed as it does appear to have red bark and the general size and shape of needles and other parts looks about right. There are however a large number of other pines.

Too may pines to be sure

This does look like Pinus sylvestris but there are so many pine species it is hard to be sure. I agree with miked's comments above.

I cannot give ID agreement with any certainty.

It is possibly Pinus sylvestris. Too make I.D. of pines easier it is useful to note the number of needles in a bundle.
Pinus sylvestris is a 2 needle. The leaves are 5-7cm long and relatively thick.
