What ever you do, do not be fobbed off into receiving Scottish pound notes! I have a few of them issued by Bank of Scotland, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and the Clydesdale Bank. They are, or were, good for 100 pennies in the pound in Scotland but take them to England and you'd be lucky to get 70 pennies in the pound if anything at all.

Tried it. It's a special transaction to request foreign currency exchange here. That's how Robin bought the pounds. However they don't want to hassle with people bringing in foreign currency. I've given up even doing loonies and we live 4mi from the border! Besides, these bills are no longer legal tender. At least as of next week.

I'm thinking that we'll just go to the Nat'l Bk of Scotland in Edinburgh and see.
