Yes we certainly will. It’s a good point about money in Scotland. As you say, it is a different system and, in theory, Scottish notes (and Northern Ireland bank notes) are not legal tender in England, but most businesses do accept them.

why are they not legal tender? at least now i know why i was rejected in some english shops as a kid when wanting to pay for things. yet scotland accepts all money no issues. we often end up with english money in our machines. whats the difference between each of the money? as far as i can tell its just the bank it comes from thats different and should not be a reason to reject it. after al it holds the same value.
