Tree ID please

Hi

 

I spotted this tree in a valley in North Wales the other day. It was about 50 - 60 feet high and dominated the hillside. Unfortunately it was too far away for me to get a good look at its leaves but I got a couple of zoom shots with my camera. (The best I could manage sorry)

 

My guess is it's a Beech If anyone can confirm or disprove this I'd be grateful. .

 

 

Thank you

    habdab - I am sure you are right - European beech, Fagus sylvatica.

     

    The shape of the leaves and spur-twigs confirms it for me, along with the shape of the whole crown (including its coming down to the ground)
