A new banknote picturing Scotsman Robert Burns was unveiled this week at his birthplace, Burns Cottage.
Robert Burns, one of Scotland's most famous sons, is featured on Clydesdale Bank's new £10 note, which is now in circulation. This note is the fourth of Clydesdale Bank's new world heritage banknotes.
As well as featuring ‘The Bard' on the front, the £10 note will also depict an iconic image of Edinburgh's Old and New Towns on the reverse.
Clydesdale Bank's new note collection showcases the best of Scotland's heritage, people and culture and is the first time in more than 20 years the Bank has launched a completely new set of notes.
The front of each new note will honour a prominent and innovative Scot while the reverse will feature one of Scotland's five World Heritage Sites.
Clydesdale Bank is the largest issuer of banknotes in Scotland, with more than £1.1billion in circulation in any given week.
