The monetary unit of Scotland is the Great Britain Pound, and this currency converter tool will give you a rough idea of how far your money is likely to stretch.
Although Scotland has its own banking system, English banknotes are legal tender and freely accepted, so you are likely to have a mixture of both Scottish and English notes while you are here. Sterling banknotes will be in denominations of £5, £10, £20 and £50.
Our coinage consists of ‘pence’ which come in 1,2,5,10,20, and 50 pence pieces, a £1 coin, and a £2 coin. There are 100 pence to £1, and although It’s always handy to arrive at your destination with some local currency, remember not to carry too much cash. Travellers cheques are a much safer bet.
