Tour 4
‘My word is my bond’

Legal and Financial sectors

We have created this tour to give the visitors an insight into the special legal and financial systems that make Scotland unique.

Scots Law differs from the rest of the UK and, being based on Roman Law, is in many ways more akin to other European countries.

The tour would start in Edinburgh, as the main financial service centre in Great Britain outside London, with the headquarters of major banks, insurance companies and fund managers based there. On day two we would travel to Glasgow, currently developing an international financial district on the banks of the River Clyde more >>
