Seed pod of some kind?

Washed up on Brora beach in the Highlands. Made for a decent photo, but I've no idea what it is, how long it was in the water, or where it came from. Could do with an ID for key wording. It was about the size of my thumb.

Looks like a dead thistle head to me.

Great Burdock, Arctium lappa I should say, well dried out and pickled!

Ah, it's probably off someone's dried flower display somewhere. That would explain it's pristine condition after spending time in the sea. Thanks very much.
