Wild Orcid in Scotland

As I was walking down the disused railway in Scotland I found this late flowering orchid. I wonder if anyone knows what specie it is likely to be? It was dark so the spike is drawn up (it must have been at least 3 feet tall). Photographed about 2 weeks ago.

Looks rather like Dactylorhiza fuchsii (Common Spotted-orchid)
