Scotland's currency is pound Sterling (GBP) the same currency is used throughout the UK (England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland) Scotland does however print it's own banknotes which are distinctly different from those used in the rest of the UK, these Scottish notes are in theory widely accepted throughout the UK however some areas do resist the 'foreign' notes. As of October 2007 there are no plans to change this.
