Hi Sally,

Yes, spot on, it is indeed Scots Pine!

Trees aren't so much my thing but that looks like a Scots Pine, 'Pinus sylvestris' one of only three conifers native to the UK along with yew and juniper although you would never think if you looked round the gardens in this area, conifers seem to be everywhere like big green monsters, casting shade all year round and scoffing all the moisture and goodness from the soil. As you can probably tell I am not a fan but apparently you can eat the pollen and the very young needles of Scots Pine or make a herbal tea of the older needles.
