Black beetle at Loch Drolsay, Isle of Islay

Image

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.

Picture of a glen (valley) with a larger loch (lake) and a few smaller onesA view over a wide and expansive landscape in the centre of Islay, north of Bridgend. The view is north over Glen Drolsay with Loch Drolsay in the centre. I’m not sure from where exactly I took this picture, I think either from┬áCnoc Carrach or a bit further south. If anyone can identify the location from this picture please leave a note in the comments.
