Amanita regalis

On second thoughts, maybe not. Apparently Amanita regalis is relatively common in Scandinavia but has only been formally reported twice in Britain.

It might well be a Blusher... try adding an ID for that and see if anyone agrees. Also, if you're nearby again, try cutting or bruising any part of the mushroom to see if it turns pink.
