Fungi Sp.?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

I found this on a log around the Loch Lomond area of Scotland and wondered if someone might show some light on the species, many thanks...

No, not a fungus but a lichen.

It's a Peltigera species and I suspect Peltigera membranacea, but a close look at the rhizines is necessary to take it further.
