Do you have a shot of the whole plant - leaves especially? If it is really tiny we may be confused by the scale of the pic. Very unlikely to be Dodder at that location, though. It is unknown in Scotland except locally in the SE (and an outlying dot near Aberdeen.

Could it be an Alchemilla, flowers similar but leaves don't look right?

I think it is an Alchemilla sp. The flower is wrong for Sibbaldia, as is the area and habitat.

I had a close look at an Alchemilla flower (I had not looked that closely before) and it looks very similar. I originally went for dodder on the swollen area at the top of the corolla tube and could not think of nay other likely candidate - I know know that Alchemilla has this feature - thanks ispot and Cicuta58
