Flow gently sweet Afton among thy green braes!
Recently, one of the Scots visiting the US went to change some money at Thomas Cook's. He was told the exchange rate, and when he produced 100 pounds in bills from a Scottish bank, the rate was changed, and he was told the rate for note on Scottish banks is different..
Later, he attempted the same thing at Chase Bank where again there were different rates for Scottish and English notes. One hundred pounds from England have produced $144.00 while Scottish notes merited only $140.04. While the difference is that great, the bills are regarded as identical by law in the UK.
It would seem wise then, for travelers coming from Scotland to change their money to English notes before departing Scotland. Then thy would get a higher rate here. Before returning, change American money for Scottish notes (thereby getting a higher rate again!)
