You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Dental Surgeries

Craiglockhart Dental Practice

132 Colinton Rd, Edinburgh EH14 1BY, UK – 0131 443 4050

I can not recommend this practice enough! I recently joined as I required some urgent dental work but I was also interested in the teeth whitening treatments as well as getting my front crown replaced (as I always felt my last crown didn't quite match my other front tooth in colour or shape). I found the service here excellent and the staff were all so friendly. I was amazed at the results and everyone who knows me comments on how great my teeth look!!

Staff very friendly and helpful, and I was seen as soon as my appointment was due. No undue pressure to undertake unnecessarily expensive treatments, but instead a professional and first class scale and polish - and all on NHS. I was with a private practice for years and there is absolutely no discernable difference in the quality of care...except there's no wallet-paralysing bill at the end. Cannot believe that everyone eligible doesn't take advantage of this excellent service.

Gorgie Road Dental Practice

296/, 1 Gorgie Road, Edinburgh EH11 2PP, UK – 0131 337 3936

Corstorphine Dental Centre

96 Saughton Road North, Edinburgh EH12 7JU, UK – 0131 334 2524

Dr Hardy always goes the extra mile to ensure my dental health. fantastic dentist and meticulous, with a wonderful bed side manner.

I've been a patient at Corstorphine Dental Centre for 8 years and have always found the staff to be professional and welcoming. My dentist is Thomas Murphy, his skill and experience always engenders absolute confidence. He's easily the best dentist I've ever had, I can't recommend him highly enough. I've had fillings, extraction, root canal treatment, a crown and a partial chrome denture and have been thoroughly delighted with all my treatment. I have an issue with generalised anxiety and Thomas always goes out of his way to calm me down and is happy to explain everything to me in terms that I can easily understand.

Some of the best Doctors in town; some of the worst receptionists as well

Blackhall Medical Centre

Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Edinburgh

122 Corstorphine Rd, Edinburgh EH12 6UD, UK – 0131 334 0363

The hospital is lovely and the grounds are beautiful. I wish the cleaners were a bit better though because spiders and other people's hair in your room is very off-putting. I had the worst sleep ever, the rooms are not remotely sound proof and you can hear everything going on in the ward! But they are spacious and comfortable. All staff, but one, were lovely. They were very accommodating and caring. The one that wasn't was still nice but she didn't have the same warm nature as the others. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend it here.

A totally amazing and professional experience at this hospital, under consultant Mr Awf Quaba.Simply the best!!!

Western General Hospital

Crewe Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 2XU, UK – 0131 537 1000

Waited 10 months to be seen by a specialist, in 3 minutes he told me that achilles tendon inflammation is not treatable and sent me on my way. Why could they not have told me this 10 months ago over the phone? Waited 7 months to see a hearing specialist who told me tinnitus can't be treated and to try relax, and sent home within 5 minutes. Again, could they not have told me over the phone? Them specialists have a real easy well paid job.

Admitted with Australian flu and pneumonia, the staff. Nurses and doctors were fantastic, they were very busy but remained caring, polite and so efficient Thank you to all the nurses and doctors, you are doing a wonderful job in very difficult conditions.

Ferryfield House

100 Pilton Dr, Edinburgh EH5 2HF, UK – 0131 537 6246

What an amazing place. The fabric of the building is a little tired but this can be excused and is more than compensated for by the wonderful staff who work there. They looked after my mum brilliantly with a lot of little touches that made my mums final few weeks very comfortable. From Mary who brought mum in a metro to read, ( just because she saw one), to the catering and cleaning staff who always had a smile and a few stories to share every single person went the extra mile. The professional care my mum received was just excellent I couldn't have asked for more. As well as making my mum comfortable Leanne and Shona took time out to make sure I was coping and offered friendly advice and a shoulder to cry on when I needed it. I will always remember Ferryfield House fondly and my advice to the team there is keep doing what you are doing it makes a huge difference.

Household Waste Recycling Centre

Bankhead Ave, Edinburgh EH11 4EA, UK – 0131 529 3030

cracking place to get rid of some of your unwanted goods. staff incredibly helpful and efficient

Having read some of the reviews of the Sighthill Recycling Centre I was daunted about taking my old kitchen here in a twin axle trailer. However, having visited here 2 times in the same day I can say that the experience wasn't as bad as some reviewers. On the first visit we had no contact with any staff. On the second visit a staff member approached us as we were putting the rubbish in the wrong area but he was pleasant enough and helped us to the right area.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

China Red

Michael Malone of Edinburgh, 6 New Market Rd, Edinburgh EH14 1RJ, UK – 0131 443 8887

Lovely friendly staff. Wide ranging buffet. Wonderful cake/dessert range. Not as large a selection as the one in town centre but definitely worth 5 stars

The restaurant looks lovely inside and all of the staff are helpful. It is a unique restaurant as the food is on a conveyor belt and brings a large variety around. The downside to this, is that if you are looking for something specific you can find yourself waiting for 10 minutes. I have been several times and depending on how busy and where you have been seated, sometimes the food you want never comes. However if you ask a member of staff to get you a certain dish they will get you a freshly cooked dish - which is great! Desserts are not the best but they do have a nice variety. For the price, this is a great restaurant and I always recommend it to my friends and family. I have and will continue to return.

Nursery and Preschools

Flying Colours Nursery Barnton

534 Queensferry Rd, Edinburgh EH4 6EE, UK – 0131 574 2679

This is a gem of a nursery. If you have ask someone else to look after your precious cargo then choose somewhere the staff smile, support and care. Excellent nursery and wonderful ethos.

I am so glad that I made the decision to move my child to Flying Colours. I have had trouble with settling him in other nurseries but my son is the most settled that he has ever been and that's down to the the friendly and approachable nursery staff. The innovative ideas which making learning fun is a big hit for my son! Fantastic nursery!

Public & Preparatory Schools

St George's School for Girls

Garscube Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 6BG, UK – 0131 311 8000

I moved from Erskine Stewart's Melville School in P7 across to St. George's. The experience I had at this school was amazing. I loved coming to this school! The classes are a lot smaller this means that you get more attention from the teachers. All the teachers are so dedicated and passionate about their job and their subjects this in return made us want to learn more and do well in our exams. The EDUCATION, the SUPPORT, and the OPPORTUNITIES at this school are EXCELLENT.

Great school, good education. The food is great, the only problem was that you had to pay for all of the uniform.

Stewart's Melville College

Queensferry Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3EZ, UK – 0131 311 1000

They taught me some important things (how to tie a tie), some less important things (the mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell) and gave me a good few laughs along the way. 9/10 I would go again. Although the rules about hair length are pretty strict.

I'm a student myself so yeah, it's great I love it here.
