    Growing amongst ash, beech, birch and sycamore in NE Scotland.

    Didn't have the camera at the time so no pics of tree or berries.

    Berries were green and hard, possibly as yet unripe. A bit like a big haw or rowanberry. Very pippy.

    Leaves just on the turn.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Leaf smells kind of appley.

    Any ideas?

    Looks like it but Alder doesn't have berries, it's one of the few decidious trees that have a cone similar to conifers for its seeds.

    I thought we were too far north for whitebeam. I'll take the dog out again. This time with a camera.

    yes all sounds like whitebeam to me, leaf a bit small but that's what you'd expect up North.

    likely to be ''Whitebeam'', if so the berries should turn from green to red when ripe.

    Yup, Def a whitebeam. And yes, they do grow up your way. Granted, they won't grow as large as down south but i've seen them in Sweden as lovely specimens, and its even colder over there!!!
