The Moroccan Dirham is non-convertible and you can't take Moroccan currency out of the country. Despite this many people do bring Dirhams back with them and you can sell them back to currency houses. This means that at any one time there will only be a few suppliers offering Dirhams and the supply will be limited.
If you cannot get enough Moroccan Dirhams you should consider a prepaid currency card as ATMs are widely available in cities and most of the main towns.
The other alternative is to take Pounds with you and change your currency there. You can take any amount of foreign currency into Morocco, but you won’t be able to change Scottish bank notes and it's very difficult to exchange traveller's cheques.
British nationals can stay in Morocco for up to three months without a visa, but you will need to contact the Consulate General of the kingdom of Morocco in London if you plan to stay for longer than three months.
When you enter Morocco, make sure you passport is stamped. Some tourists have reported problems when leaving the country because their passports have not been stamped on entry.
You should also make sure that you carry a prescription with you for any medication that you take as some medications are prohibited in Morocco.
The Algerian / Moroccan border is closed and you should not attempt to cross it at any point.
