Thanks to John for writing to say, "This one is growing 'wild' in part of what is known as Raith Estate in Kirkcaldy, Fife. It looks about 35 to 40m high (definitely more than 30m). There's also some other very interesting non-native trees in the same patch so I'm guessing that sometime near the end of the 19th Century, the Laird of the estate or someone from his family had a little experimental patch in the plantation."

Thanks for the information and photographs of this Giant Redwood, the dogs are a great addition! It sounds like a good collection of trees on the estate and you are very likely correct about the planting of them by the owners of the estate, it was the thing to do in the Victorian era when the plant hunters brought them back from overseas in the 1850s.
