I have posted the image but not 100% sure, I know that the colour can vary somewhat. Was found close to EH31 2BE, Gullane Beach, among the dunes. Any thoughts on ID or would a specimen be preferred?
Update 19/06 Sussed it out now, cheers.

Please can you provide a full postcode or Ordnance Survey grid reference and date of the records so that they can be added to the recording scheme.
Both found in corners in ceiling. The possible Steatoda nobilis in the corner of a dark bathroom . Hasn't moved from this corner in months, drops down out of corner and suspends in the nightime. The Pholcidae seemed to go into hibernation, hadn't moved position in weeks, and I thought it was dead, but recently moved it's legs today. The Pholcidae is in the corner near the back door of our home leading to the garden.
The spider body was, at a guess, about 3-4mm long. Here is another photo, I don't know if that's clearer. I looked for it again today, but it has moved - I'll keep an eye out. If I find it again, I'll try to capture it for studio shots which would give me a better chance of a sharp and clear series of photos.
I found it on 5,6,15. The habitat is a east facing wall of a toilet block with typical red brick and mortar, the surrounding area is managed gardens within an urban area of terrace houses close to the city centre.
Found in my garden in a bunch of dead stinging nettles in a bucket. After asking on a wildlife forum I was told it was probably Harpactea hombergi. If you can confirm this from a photo, you could perhaps add it to your records.
Taken in a garden in North Cambs, Grid: TF 15127 06082 , two days ago.
