When I was travelling in Scotland last month, a Glaswegian told me that if you dropped in unexpectedly on someone in Glasgow you'd be asked, "You'll have some tea, won't you?", whereas if it happened in Edinburgh the question would be, "You'll have had your tea, won't you?"
Having received warm welcomes in Glasgow and remote (albeit polite) ones in Edinburgh, I reckon that sounds about right.
