Money and Tipping

Scotland's currency is the British Pound (£, GBP) though Scottish banks issue their own notes at a 1:1 rate. English Sterling notes are usually mixed with Scottish notes. Ask for change in Sterling notes since they will be easier to change outside of Scotland. Banks should exchange with no commission. A small tip (5-10%) is appreciated when dining in restaurants.
