Glasgow's top attraction, the Burrell Collection, was amassed by wealthy industrialist Sir William Burrell before it was donated to the city. It's now housed in a prize-winning museum in the Pollok Country Park. This idiosyncratic collection includes everything from Chinese porcelain and medieval furniture to paintings by Renoir and Cézanne.
Scottish fare features plenty of local game and roasted meats. Haggis is perhaps one of the better-known dishes. Fresh seafood is also popular, not to mention Scottish salmon. Shortbread is a traditional recipe of Scotland and should not be missed.
The pound sterling (GBP) is valid in both England and Scotland, but Scottish banks also issue their own banknotes. These are generally accepted in England, but if problems do arise, most banks will exchange Scottish currency for pound sterling hassle-free. Traveler's checks are widely accepted in banks, and credit cards can be used in most places.
