"Where's Scotland?" a store cashier in England asked when presented with Scottish banknotes

A Scot who regularly travels to England was paying for a purchase in a TK Maxx shop in Milton Keynes with a Scottish note.

But he almost didn't get his shopping, as the cashier told him she had "never seen foreign money before".

She then asked him: "Where’s Scotland?”

Apparently some people in England never learned geography in school.

So are Scottish notes Legal tender?

Technically Scottish notes and notes from Northern Irish Banks are not legal tender in the UK. But since they must be accepted by banks, the notes are accepted at the discretion of recipients in England and Wales.
