Can you identify this bird?

This dead bird was found on Ardentinny Beach today. Can anyone identify the species? Possibly some type of Skua?

    There was another bird floating dead in the water today, just out from ardentinny hotel. Looked similar but was too far out to see properly.

    Thanks John, yes it does look like a Guillemot. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Common_Guillemots_Reykjanes_Iceland.jpg
