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!

Banks

Bank of Scotland

206 St John's Rd, Edinburgh EH12 8SH, UK – 0131 465 2511

Excellent staff, so professional and friendly that I would like to visit more often the branch :-)

Excellent staff, loses a star just for car parking facilities.

Bank of Scotland

43 Comely Bank, Edinburgh EH4 1AF, UK – 0131 456 8501

Standard banking facility, staff are friendly but it can be quiet busy especially during peak times. Cash machine just inside and a deposit machine near the desks for convenience. Car park can be full especially at school times.

Friendly staff, with time to talk - when was the last time you experienced this in a bank? Despite its rather austere modern exterior, this bank exudes warmth and local flavour - nothing seemed too much trouble for them. Good customer service breeds loyalty - a policy that is clearly at work here.

Royal Bank of Scotland

239 St John's Rd, Edinburgh EH12 7XA, UK – 0345 724 2424

Very friendly, helpful and polite. Treat people with respect. Very good with people who have mental health issues.

Brilliant bank and speedy service.

Local Chambers of Commerce for EH12 5ST. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done. Equally they can be entirely useless depending on the chair. If they have networking events associated with them definitely go, and keep going, if you have a business that need local support. What you put in is exactly what you get out. Below is the national site. Watch this slot - it might improve!
Edinburgh Council Fleet Services and MOT

38 Russell Rd, Edinburgh EH11 2LP, UK – 0131 337 2307

No trouble mot for our 14 year old car, they even changed an indicator bulb that was on its way out for free. Will be going back next year.

No fuss, and really straight forward gents.

Drumbrae Library Hub

81 Drum Brae Dr, Edinburgh EH4 7FE, UK – 0131 529 5244

Yet again two cars occupying the Turning Only bays in the car park. What is the purpose of these, if not enforced?

This recently built, modern library has everything you need in a local community. You can order books from any Edinburgh library using the app and pick them up and drop them off here. They also have a nice quiet area for reading or studying as well as computers for kids and a toddler singing group. The staff seem to deal with the local teenagers well and it's a nice place to drop into to pick up a new book to read. I think they also serve coffee but I've never tried it.

Dental Surgeries

Enhance Dental Care

1a-3 Drum Brae Ave, Edinburgh EH12 8TE, UK – 0131 339 9845

Superb dental experience always from Komathy and staff. Caring, experienced, gentle and a good choice of appointments. Have dealt with emergencies and done root canal work with outstanding skill and patience. Also, free parking at door !

Absolutely outstanding has done exactly what I wanted, has made me feel at ease on all visits . I don't feel like a number I feel I am a valued customer I just can't recommend enough.

Gorgie Road Dental Practice

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

Fantastic service as always from Mr Cruickshank and team at Gorgie dental practice. Thanks for getting me sorted so swiftly. I really appreciate your help and professionalism.

St Johns Road Dental Practice

176-178 St John's Rd, Edinburgh EH12 8BE, UK – 0131 334 2704

My family and I have been patients at this dentist for 20+years and for the last 4 years seeing Suzanne Cooke. Suzanne has been brilliant with all the family. I was very impressed Saturday appointments were available which is excellent for my daughter who only comes home on occasional weekends from uni. You can expect a consistently great service from this practice. Highly recommend.

Brilliant Practice for all the family. Have been coming for years and now bring my own kids. Really nice staff and great appointment times.

Slateford Medical Centre

27 Gorgie Park Close, Edinburgh Area, Gorgie Park Rd, Edinburgh EH14 1NQ, UK – 0131 442 8700

The staff I've met here are lovely, all very approachable and easy to speak to. Haven't had any issues with getting appointment. Would highly recommend.

Ladywell Medical Centre West

10 Ladywell Rd, Edinburgh EH12 7TB, UK – 0131 334 3602

Dr Williams is very good but reception are very rude

Craiglockhart Surgery

161 Colinton Rd, Edinburgh EH14 1BE, UK – 0131 455 8494

Been going here for a long time. Doctors were very considerate and know what they're doing, receptionist was reasonable and the fish tank in the waiting room is cool.

I am so grateful for the terrific support given to me by both doctors, nurses and receptionists over the last few years. I cannot praise highly enough the professionalism and the caring approach.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

The Edinburgh Clinic

40 Colinton Rd, Edinburgh EH10 5BT, UK – 0131 447 2340

An in-depth appointment with an expert consultant, the friendliest staff, impressive clinical facilities and an incredibly calming environment...that was my experience of The Edinburgh Clinic. Their follow-up aftercare was excellent and I bypassed NHS waiting times to be seen quickly and at a time of my choosing. So deserving of a five-star review

Excellent service from start to finish could not be faulted from the first meeting with Gp to the procedure it's self would use again first class

Western General Hospital

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

Nurses and receptionist was lovely! Couldn't fault them however St. John's hospital is still the place j prefer to go in regards to my op

The staff and quality of service at this hospital are both very good. The 3 star rating is given to highlight the confusing nature of the campus. The signage is not clear and the inside of the hospital is difficult to navigate.

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!!!

Find Recycling Centres

Community Recycling Centre

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

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.

Unlike some other customers, I had a great experience when I went to the Sighthill Waste Recycling Centre today. I turned up with 2 bags of waste for landfill, electrical stuff, boxes of cards, glass, metal and spent spotlight bulbs. I stopped to ask Kevin (Hearts supporter) and Paul (from Essex) where various items should be left and within seconds they followed me round to the boot of the car and started to heave the items out. They were funny, polite, helpful and wouldn't let me lift any of the heavy stuff. They are a credit to their employers and I hope they are complimented on their customer service. Thanks guys - you made my trip so easy! Carol

John Mcdonald Metal Recycling | Scrap Yard Edinburgh

15 Sauchiebank, Edinburgh EH11 2NN, UK – 0131 337 5400

Bit tricky to get a park, but easy to deal with. Good price, no hassle. Would use again.

Regenerate Edinburgh

26, 50 Dumbryden Rd, Edinburgh EH14 2AB, UK – 0131 629 4480

Really great! They did the job on the same as I called them. Friendly and very competent staff. Will definitely use again.

Brilliant service, I have used this company a few times now.

Give and get free stuff. Here you will find lots of items that people are willing to give away, for FREE! This is instead of taking them to a local landfill site. The aim of this site is to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill (20.9 million tonnes of it last year in the UK) and recycling is great news for the environment.
We all know that we need to recycle more - and this is a great way of doing it.

Nursery and Preschools

Flying Colours Nursery Barnton

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

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!

We feel very blessed that our girl is able to attend such a great nursery. The love, care and consideration shown to her by the staff is second to none and it is very comforting to us that she is well cared for. Our little girl loves going there and actively asks to go, showing how much she enjoys it. The facilities are also excellent and we are very impressed by the level of attention to cleanliness, indoor and outdoor play and nutrition.

Primary and Secondary Schools

Balgreen Primary School

171 Balgreen Rd, Edinburgh EH11 3AT, UK – 0131 337 6066

Well I suppose it is a very good school but it is very noisy to. I go to Gilmerton primary school and my head teacher is going to your school good luck. He is called Richard but you call him MR napper. Well Gilmerton primary school have a big play grownd with lots of grass you don't. Mr nappie is leaving Gilmerton primary school at 29 of April.

I love the school I walk most of the time but we only go in the car if it is raining

Roseburn Primary School

64 Roseburn St, Edinburgh EH12 5PL, UK – 0131 337 6096

A fantastic school with excellent facilities, great teachers and generally intelligent children.

Flora Stevenson Primary School

175 Comely Bank Rd, Edinburgh EH4 1BG, UK – 0131 332 1604

Summary: Lovely primary school with friendly staff and an adjoining music school. Flora's is a busy council-run primary school serving the Stockbridge and Comely Bank communities from its Victorian facilities and newer extensions. Of note is the attached Edinburgh Music School where gifted children from across the city benefit from a specialist musical programme in addition to their normal curriculum. Also, the school hosts many after-school activities and a sizeable after-school club, so provides significant support for working parents. However, not all is perfect. The class sizes are large, the staff are clearly very busy and, worst of all, the playground is incredibly small given the number of children it serves. But, that aside, it's a happy school with superb staff, and both of my children have really enjoyed their education there over the years. Also of note is the school's very close relationship with nearby Broughton High School, which ensures children transitioning to secondary education are fully supported at all times.

I used to go its a lot better than bruntsfielf

The most beautiful college in Edinburgh.

St George's School for Girls

Garscube Terrace, Murrayfield, 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.

The Mary Erskine School

Ravelston Dykes Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3NT, UK – 0131 347 5700
