Mystery Flower in Glasgow

I'm definitely one to stop and smell the flowers. In this case, I had to take a picture. These flowers were in front of University Gardens in Glasgow. I don't know what the dew-droppy, purply flowers are. Do you know?

Hi Elizabeth!

They are Snakes Head Fritillaries.
"Instantly recognizable by their distinctive snake-skin markings, Fritillaria meleagris is at its best when grown in areas of damp woodlands or informal areas of grass. Although native to the UK, Snakes Head Fritillaries are now protected and rarely seen in the wild so it's a real joy to admire these elegant flowers in your garden." from
