Actually no UK bank note is "legal tender" in Scotland.

seriously,you guys might not be overly surprised that alot of us scots who cross the border and offer a "normal" tenner and get a look as if if just offered a chipped marble as payment for goods! many a defensive argument iv had on that issue
worst of all i went to malysia for a family wedding with a several hundered quid or scottish sterling in my tail only to find when i went exchange the buggers for rignets (malaysian dollors) i got refused!!! and ended up in KL with no useable money….i ended up borrowing the value of my currency from my malasian family for 3 weeks and took them home again. if only id been slightly less naive and simply swapped them for english notes…something that had not even crossed my mind.Posted 8 years agothepuristSubscriberbereavementmonkeySubscriber
Mainland europe they have €500 notes…. so about £500 at the mo…. When I lived in Spain no stores would break them but locals would change them with you as they kept all their loot at home and not in the bank! As they get quite heavily taxed on their savings.Posted 8 years agosimply_oli_yMember
we have them (scotland) i don't have any problems using them (when i have them).
and as said, its a pain in the arse trying to use scottish notes down in england. some places are ok, but a large amount of the time people give you a glaikit look wondering what they are. :|.
As for the exchange thing, when i went to canada last year i went into a bank to exchange some money, counted out the dollars i was due, (At about 1.95>£) then they realised it was scottish notes, and gave me them at a rate of 2.38>£ 😀Posted 8 years ago

I like all the wrong answers 🙂 £100 notes from RBOS Clydesdale and BOS are pretty common- mostly the ones in circulation are BOS though, RBS prints a token number because some people like them, Clydesdale and BOS make more use of them. They can be a bit difficult to spend, but it depends what you're doing with them, in casinos, car dealerships and other places that do regular big cash transactions you'll generally be fine but in a nightclub, best of luck 😉
Still, bank of england £50s are the preferred big note up here.Posted 8 years ago
