Fungi In Caithness
Fungi Photos From Caithness
Identifying fungi can be very difficult and we at Caithness.org have no expertise on the subject. Some of our surfers are beginning to send in their suggestions.

Image 12 is not a bracket fungus.
2 & 3 are next to near impossible to identify from the photos.
15 I don't think is Blusher as it appears to have no gills but, tubes instead like a boletus.
5 & #6 are photos of the same fungi from different angles right? you took them didn't you? they are definitely liberty caps, hippie heaven. (not yellow stainers or Fairy Ring as suggested, and Fairy Ring Champignons ARE edible and so one would end up for a bit unique dining experience if eating these mushrooms in photos 5 & 6. LOL
8 is absolutely not a saffron milk cap.. even with this photo you can see there are no rings or the proper characteristic blotches and it is the wrong colour.
11 again.. we see the distinctive colour and white, pyramidal warts on the cap.
Also, Liz states that out of the ones she's identified the only one that is edible is the ink cap which isn't so. The Fairy Ring Champignon is edible, the Saffron Milk Cap is edible, the Giant Puffball is edible and delicious but, yes.. by far the Ink Cap is the gourmet out of the bunch. I have a Shaggy Ink Cap photo recipe I posted on my blog if you want to post it. Shaggy Ink Caps are by far the easiest mushroom for the beginner to identify and are very common.
Image 22, 23, 39 are all shaggy ink caps.
