Deciding on a tree for my back garden

hi all, just wondering if anyone has any advice on choosing trees for my back garden. Ideally I want it to be 8m height wise and fairly narrow maybe 4 m or so? I’m currently thinking of a Prunus spire but open to any suggestions.

    Has to be a rowan - based on your name as much as anything else  ;)

    Apart from the native [Sorbus aucuparia] there are loads of named varieties to choose from. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

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