Several Scottish banks issue their own bank notes. You shouldn’t have trouble using them in shops etc in the north of England and in Northern Ireland, but elsewhere they may be refused. Although all UK banks will accept them, foreign banks generally do not.
Euros are accepted in Scotland only at some major tourist attractions and a few upmarket hotels - it’s always better to have cash in sterling.
