I would take English notes to exchange into Euros. I've even had hassle trying to use Scottish notes in England and Wales!

if you take scottish notes you can only buy the " full scottish" breakfast ..

re the towels most hotels charge a deposit which is returned .

Scottish pounds are fully legal tender and you should not have any problems at all.

Hi Victoria,

I only take a wee drop Euros and the rest in British notes (whatever I have)

I do this as you always get a better rate on the island than you do here.

I have been doing this for umpteen years and I have never had a problem.

Victoria,

Assuming that you are intending changing notes at an exchange outlet then I can't speak for them all but you will have no problem if you use one of Admiral Travel outlets and they usually give you a good rate of exchange anyway. You could also email tenerife sunshine on their online chat and find out if they accept them.

Degsy you may not be aware but the rate of exchange is often a lot better in Tenerife than it is here. For example Tenerife Sunshine are currently offering 1.15 - you might get that online but you certainly wouldn't get that rate in any travel agents/post office etc today so you shouldn't be so quick to jump in with smart answers.

Scottish notes are NOT legal tender and nowhere outside of Scotland is obliged to accept them.
