I've just discovered a few in an old case. Are they still used, or have they been phased out now?

Work.... Where else?
With regards to using scottish money down south, alot of places will refuse to take the cash, as they are uneducated, and dont realise that Scotland has its own set of notes. The notes are actually worthless, and are just pieces of paper. They are actually promises to pay, and are from olden times, and act like an IOU. If any shop refuses to take a note, then explain to them that anything that holds the queens head is legal tender. Its like a lot of shops dont take £50 notes, yet they are legal tender.

Also on a side note, anyone know what is the highest value note you can have in the UK?
