Having difficulty identifying this shell found in Orkney

Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and I am hoping to get a little bit of help with identification of sea shells.  These are shells I find in Orkney.  This one in the middle has me completely stuck.  There is a lower photo of the other side of the shell.  The beach I found this on has areas where there is erosion so I wondered if it might be a fossil shell but I find lots of the little things on the right which look a bit like it and they don't look like fossils.  Does anyone know?  It is fan shaped and grey with a wavy top edge.  Thank you in advance for your time.

I have added a third photo showing a small grey shell I did find in the eroding bit of land at the beach along with more of these little white things I find in the sand.
