Slightly less popular as questions about traveling to Scotland go is, do I need to change my money? Another no is the answer to this question. However, you will notice in Scotland that the notes look different. £10 of Bank of England notes has exactly the same value as £10 of Bank of Scotland notes, £10 of Royal Bank of Scotland notes and £10 of Clydesdale Bank notes. Yes, there are three banks in Scotland which have the right to produce money, versus one in England, one in Ireland and none in Wales. All pound sterling notes are acceptable in all parts of the United Kingdom. Scottish notes are often faced with skepticism in London because they are popular with counterfeiters trying to pass off fake money, but real Scottish notes are unquestionably viable.
My favorite question is, what did that person say? Some Scottish accents can be difficult to decipher by an untrained ear, but there is every chance that that person really did say, "Deep fried Mars Bars are delicious". It's a Scottish delicacy and well worth a try!
