What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I saw this butterfly whilst out walking with my family by Loch Eck side which is close to Benmore gardens near Dunoon in Argyllshire, Scotland. I would appreciate it if anyone could help me to identify it as I have never seen this species in this area before.
Thanks

Because of its bright colors and diurnal habits, the Cinnabar Moth,
Tyria jacobaeae, is easy to confuse for a butterfly.
