How to phone to Scotland?

Q: How do I call to Scottish number 13x 5xx 4xxx?

A: It depends on where you’re calling from.

If you are calling from a region outside the U.K., Isle of Man, Jersey, or Guernsey, the call would be dialed as follows:

exit code: this is your country’s international exit code. For Canada, the USA, and most of the Caribbean, it is ‘011’. For most of Europe, Africa, and Asia, it is ’00’. For Australia it is ‘0011’. For Japan it is ‘010’. This number is needed to dial the international switchboard.

country code 44 – this is the country code for the United Kingdom (including Scotland). This will dial your call from the international switchboard to the United Kingdom’s phone network.

13x 5xx 4xxx – this is the local phone number within Scotland.

If you are calling from within the U.K., Isle of Man, Jersey, or Guernsey, the call would be dialed as follows:

013x 5xx 4xxx

trunk number – ‘0’ is the trunk number used when calling within the U.K.

13x 5xx 4xxx – this is the local phone number within Scotland.

If you are calling from a mobile phone number, call based on where you are physically standing at that moment.
