• The currency in Scotland is the British pound. Credit cards are accepted in cities and major hotels but many small bed-and-breakfast inns and pubs deal only in cash.

• U.S. citizens require a passport but don’t need a visa unless they plan to stay six months or more.

• Current is 240VAC, 50Hz. That means hair dryers and other personal appliances made in North America require an adapter.

• Time throughout Scotland is five hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time.
