We saw this tree whilst walking in the Cairngorms, Highlands, Scotland, but we cannot find out what it is. There was only one! Please help us identify it.

Could it be an Elder (Sambucus)?

Yes, it likely is an elderberry, just not the species with flat top flower heads. In America we have Sambucus racemosa with flowers that look like that. I don't know if Scotland has the same species or perhaps a similar European counterpart.
