Succulent with green mottled spiky leaves and attractive red flowers on Portuguese cliff top.

Many thanks Steve, I'm sure you're right now I've done more checking and have found records of this plant at the location I photographed it - Ponta da Piedade near Lagos. There are lots of images of "Aloe vera" with red flowers online, some with mottled leaves but I suspect many are mislabelled A maculata
