Black beetle at Loch Drolsay, Isle of Islay

Picture of a black beetle crawling over stonesI spotted this beetle on the shore of Loch Drolsay during a walk in June 2015. I first thought it is a Common Black Ground Beetle, but then I understand they have grooves on their wings/wing covers? Any pointers what kind of beetle this is are welcome.
