Gymnocolia inflata

From Water of Leith above Harperrig Reservoir, on pathside banking. According to Watson moist upland soils are its favored habitat, and it can be the most prominent liverwort in many wet heath situations. Occurs (also) on peat. It was the only hepatic I remember once we got up towards 400m (although the water itself held Scapania undulata)
