Default English money out of Scottish ATM's

Anyone know if any of the banks or building societies dispense English notes from their ATMs in Scotland?

Why?

Are you musing in general, or do you want English notes for a particular reason?

The Natwest ones often seem to be loaded with English notes, at least around here, but I doubt you could definitely count on it.

2 Morrisons near me (E Kilbride) have HSBC cashpoints which always dispense English notes.

The barclays machine (on the side of the travelex) in Glasgow Airport used to only dispense English notes, however, the whole complex has changed now ... so this isn't really a very helpful post! Try going into a bank and asking for some.

The ATMs at Glasgow Airport have always dispensed English notes to me (not that I'm bothered - I love the confused looks on shopkeepers' faces in London when I present a crisp Scottish tenner!)

Any HSBC cash machine I've used up here has given english notes.

The Nationwide one at my Asda dispenses english money. We always use it before going abroad as it can be a struggle to get someone to change scottish money.

Its sterling regardless so what does it matter? You'll still be able to use either type of notes anywhere in UK..?

A lot of places in England, especially southern England, put up a real fight when you present Scottish notes. A Chinese takeaway in Oxford refused to give me the food when I gave them a Scottish 5 note to pay!

I always go to a NATwest machine for mine and always english.
I read somewhere that all airport cah machines are to be dispensing english notes but not sure if it's started.

I have it on good authority that Natwest always dispense Scottish notes

Unfair as it might seem, you will often get a significantly lower exchange rate for Scottish notes abroad. I remember in Tennessee the difference was breathtaking-this was before I discovered MSE!

In Texas I got the same rate with my Scottish notes as I did with my English notes...

Guess it depends on the bank!
