What is this shrub?

imageimageCan anyone tell me what this shrub is please?  Has been growing in my inherited garden for the past 12 months and has never flowered.  Thinking of cutting it down before it gets too large but not sure?

    looks like a self seeded willow, perhaps Salix Caprea. but I might be very , very wrong.

    Looks like it to me too Hosta. Someone else had one on here yesterday too.

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
