Rhododendron - what type?

Hi GOYs!
Can anyone let me kow what type of Rhododendron this is in my Garden? I planted it about 14yrs ago. It came from the Isle of Arran in Scotland. The picture shows this plant, which is around 7ft in high now. The leaves are about 9-12inches long and the flowers are absolutely massive! They are predominantly yellow in colour with a maroon kind of speckled throat. I think it grows really big. It is situated against a fence at the back of a shruberry, far away from our buildings. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.




As there are something like 30,000 named varieties of rhododendron, I think the likelihood of getting an id are pretty slim without a photo of the flower.
You could check the website for Glendoick Nursery in Scotland to see if they have anything similar as they are probably the biggest rhodo nursery in the UK.
Good luck
