The Diary is always very wary of identifying plants with any certainty, but thinks that this is the round-leaved sundew, Drosera rotundifolia, which we found growing on a low bank beside a burn.  Look carefully at the leaf at bottom right and you may be able to see a small, black insect trapped in the sticky hairs, which will be digested to help feed the plant.
