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

Haymarket Dental Care

3C Washington Ln, Edinburgh EH11 2HA, UK – 0131 337 8272

Have had several visits over the past few years, for extractions (wisdom and molar), fillings and routine care. David Glavin and his wife are excellent dentists who are patient and professional and I have got to trust their work and judgements implicitly.

Fantastic dentist. I wish I had found this practice years ago as they are amazing. Perfect for people like me who are terrified of dentists.

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.

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.

Dentists

EH Dental Care

2 Roseburn Terrace, Edinburgh EH12 6AW, UK – 0131 313 3079

By far the most professional dentists that I have ever attended. Went in and underwent treatment without any anxiety or worry. Very friendly staff that put you at ease.

I'm now officially over my fear of the dentist. Huge thanks for the two people responsible for this, Hayley and Orla. Thanks also to receptionist Karen for her friendly helpful manner. These ladies are amazing and I'm actually looking forward to my next visit. Xx

Gorgie Road Dental Practice

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

I can’t fault these guys at all. I’ve had lots of treatment over the last few months and everyone has been really professional but also so friendly. The dentist I’ve been seeing has been great, really reassuring when I’m such a nervous patient. I can’t sing their praises enough!

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.

Slateford Dental Care

51 Slateford Rd, Edinburgh EH11 1PR, UK – 0131 337 2689

Recently got a dental implant to replace a missing molar. The implant looks and feels very natural, and it's amazing to smile properly again for the first time in a year. Robert King and Martine Milne did a great job on the procedure and making me feel comfortable throughout all the appointments. I would definitely 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

Blackhall Medical Centre

51 Hillhouse Rd, Edinburgh EH4 3TH, UK – 0131 332 7696

I have been with this practice since Jimmy Manson etc ( about 50 years) and have found all the staff very courteous and civil. The doctors are absolutely great and not many practices will give you an emergency appointment as quick as this one. Carry on with the good work!!!

Barclay Medical Practice East Craigs

10 Bughtlin Market, Edinburgh EH12 8XP, UK – 0131 339 6670

Most of the time I get the appointment same day and the staff is very helpful

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

I find the services at the WGH efficient and courteous. Another part of the NHS, which I consider a national treasure and a blessing!

Can't fault the level of care here only problem is the parking. People seem to be abusing it by parkin up first thing and then getting the bus to their work, annoys me even more when ot says car park is full but ot is half empty

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

John Mcdonald Metal Recycling | Scrap Yard Edinburgh

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

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

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.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

Tony Macaroni

503 Queensferry Rd, Edinburgh EH4 7ND, UK – 0131 297 7444

We go here often and they never let us down! The staff is friendly and sometimes drop plates which is exciting and fun though perhaps not to all. Also the food there is swell. The pizza is superb although the cheese pull could be improved but the ice creams are exciting and delicious. Nice nice very nice Caesarino!

This restaurant is only about 200 from our home and we visit it about every 2 months or so. Good choice of food and beverages on the menu. Popular with families including Grans and Grandads. It's a big unit so we've never had a problem getting a table but it's just the two of us. I think bigger groups would be better booking ahead.

Eastern Pavilion

46 St John's Rd, Corstorphine, Edinburgh, Edinburgh EH12 6PA, UK – 0131 334 3346

Excellent food and great friendly service. Our favourite Indian restaurant of all time. Never disappointed in 15 years.

Just been for a fantastic meal, everyone was lovely and the food was amazing. The nicest Indian I've ever had. A must eat Edinburgh restaurant!

Grasslands Restaurant, Edinburgh Zoo

134 Corstorphine Rd, Edinburgh EH12 6TS, UK – 0131 334 9171

Small but diverse menu. Excellent food and friendly staff.

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.

Crewe Road Nursery Ltd

124 Crewe Rd S, Edinburgh EH4 2NY, UK – 0131 332 8392

Excellent place, lovely staff.

Scallywags Private Children's Nursery Edinburgh Midlothian- Childcare

62 Longstone Rd, Melbourne, Edinburgh EH14 2BA, UK – 0131 443 2002

I have just moved to Melbourne in Derby and I am looking for child care so I can start my new job. I visited the nursery with my daughter and we were made to feel welcome from the moment we walked through the door. The staff are lovely people and my daughter was invited to take part in snack time. The children were all well mannered and very friendly...my daughter did not want to leave! Needless to say I have chosen this day nursery above the others I have visited, it has a lovely atmosphere, and it just feels right. I have piece of mind now that my daughter will be well cared for whilst I am at work, which is the most important thing in the world to me.

Scallywags is an incredible Nursery School - the best education a small child can get in the Derby area.

Public & Preparatory Schools

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.

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.

A unique building and an outstanding school. I would recommend it to anyone.

The Mary Erskine School

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