Pleuroceras pseudoplatani

This fungus is found on Sycamore. It forms distinctive brown patches on the leaves and turns the veins almost black on the underside. It is much larger than the common Tar Spot that is common in most of the UK on Sycamore (though on Skye I have only seen it at Kilmarie). I have yet to find the pinkish brown splat  on Skye but saw it over the weekend at the Bridge of Earn:

In passing there were also some very fine Shaggy Inkcaps (something I have found on Skye):
