There's so many shops and restaurants to choose from. House of Fraser and Debenhams are huge and there's great high street shops too. Easy to navigate and very very clean! Always worth a visit

I've had Scottish notes before and spent them no problem. I've always thought its same. You could always contact metro centre management for extra peace of mind. Hope that helps. Enjoy your visit.
