British money's sound in Scottish city (8)
I believe the answer is:
Here is my best explanation:
'scottish city' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'british money's sound' is the wordplay.
'british money' becomes 'sterling' (I've seen this before).
'sound' indicates a 'sounds like' (homophone) clue.
'sterling' sounds like 'STIRLING'.
'in' is the link.
(Other definitions for stirling that I've seen before include "City on the River Forth, "Gateway to the Highlands"", "City of central Scotland, "Gateway to the Highlands"", "City in Central Scotland", "Scottish keep", "Scottish city", "university in Scotland" and "Scots royal burgh".)
