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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Bank of Scotland

15a, Cameron Toll Shopping Centre, 6 Lady Rd, Edinburgh EH16 5PB, UK – 0131 456 0800

Pleasant enough staff but always big queues. Always push you to use machines rather than humans, moving towards a robot society. TSB is right opposite, a far better option when it comes to banking.

amazing bank

Very handy ATM

Bank of Scotland

51 S Clerk St, Edinburgh EH8 9PP, UK – 0131 465 3414

This is my local branch and I really have no complaints. Staff are kind, knowledgeable and always happy to help. Good branch.

Opening a bank account here was a lovely experience. Watched a video, signed some forms and met with the bank manager. Everyone here is super smiley and friendly and that goes a very long way when you are new to the country.

Local Chambers of Commerce for EH16 4DS. 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!

Dental Surgeries

Bite Dentistry

30 Glen St, Edinburgh EH3 9JE, UK – 0131 228 3060

Yesterday I had a sinus lift and today I was at work having had no pain, no swelling or bruising. I really don't feel like I have had anything done at all!. I cannot thank Eimear enough for her professionalism, cheerfulness  and for making me feel so relaxed .  Thank you to the girls who assist her and at the reception too. The care before, during and after my treatment was excellent as always.

I have been with Bite Dentistry ever since they were still called 'Frederick Street' (2013) and before that "The Dental Clinic" (2007). They are private practice but do some NHS clients as well. Cathy, my original dentist is very professional and since retired. Helen Young is now my orthodontist. Twice a year I go for a checkup and twice for a hygenist. This permanent location is very nicely decorated and the waiting room is spacious and comfortable. Magazine and complimentary water. The machinery they use in the consult room / surgeries are top of the line. They take card when you need to pay, but you can also sign up for a 'program' of sessions (like a Dental Club Plan) - which gives you a discount when visiting and on treatments. I recommend them!

Southside Dental Care

125 Mayfield Rd, Edinburgh EH9 3AJ, UK – 0131 667 5656

We've been patients here since it opened and have always been delighted with the service. Lucy is fantastic with kids, and mine have always been relaxed and happy to hop into the chair and open wide right from when they were really little.

An excellent clinic with friendly and professional staff, clean and tidy premises and minimal waiting times. They also have a text reminder service which is a great boon for appointments. Highly recommended.

Marchmont Dental Care

35 Warrender Park Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1HJ, UK – 0131 229 5542

NHS and private dental care available. Friendly staff.

Excellent.

Liberton Medical Group

65 Liberton Gardens, Edinburgh EH16 6JT, UK – 0131 664 3050

Having only moved to Edinburgh recently we had to go through the process of being allocated a GP surgery. Although I'm incredibly lucky not to suffer from Ill health I've only had to use the surgery a couple of times and I can't fault the staff and nurses. I know it can be quite difficult to get a last minute appointment, but if you live nearby they will accept walk-ins from 8am and will try and allocate an appointment for that day - believe first appointments are from 08.40am.

Busy surgery but have always offered same day appointments. Also happy to phone me for review. Great online prescription order service.

Ferniehill Surgery

8 Ferniehill Rd, Edinburgh EH17 7AB, UK – 0131 664 2166

Excellent doctors ,nurses and support staff. I feel privileged to be attending this surgery!

Reception staff Lesley always helpfull, and will do there best to help if they can long wait but at least you get a docter that day to see, nice waiting room

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.

Fantastic care to patients

amazing

Royal Infirmary

51 Little France Dr, Edinburgh EH16 4SA, UK – 0131 536 1000

Visited a friend here today. Found the signage to find wards etc excellent, staff were very helpful and all do a fantastic job. Plenty of parking.

There are so many good and bad points to this hospital. It totally depends on who you see and where you go. For the most part I would say it was a good hospital, the staff are friendly enough. But there are those that seem inconvenienced by you and treat you with zero respect. I'm very much in the middle here!

Edinburgh Sick Children's Hospital

9 Sciennes Rd, Edinburgh EH9 1LF, UK – 0131 536 0000

The most fabulous staff. My daughter was a day patient and adored her nurse carol that much she wanted to stay in longer to lap up the attention she gave her!

The staff in here are absolutely amazing with my 2 kids in a time of need and reassurance for me.

Congratulations to the staff who have taken the time to make a little garden area around their cabin. I dropped some rubbish off yesterday and it brightened a dull edinburgh evening to see the colourful display. Well done. Staff were pleasant and helpful as usual.

Staff are usually helpful, and it's well organized and signed. It's very convenient to drop lots of rubbish for recycling.

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

Merchants Restaurant

17 Merchant St, Edinburgh EH1 2QD, UK – 0131 225 4009

Excellent service and fantastic food! A real find - the haggis and homemade fishcakes starters are highly recommended, as well as their sirloin steak. If you book a slot before 7pm, there's a £15 deal for 2 courses - the food is worth it at full price, so I honestly don't know a better deal in Edinburgh! Really, really happy with my meal.

Ate here as part of a buyagift Edinburgh castle and meal deal food was very good, large portions and good service

Lian Pu

14 Marshall St, Edinburgh EH8 9BU, UK – 0131 662 8895

Good hotpot and service. Especially, the atmosphere is relatively better than other hot pot in Edinburgh. BBQ is not recommended. But hotpot is definitely good.

Best hot pot in town! Love the razer clams :P

Ichiban Japanese Asian Restaurant

34 W Preston St, Edinburgh EH8 9PY, UK – 0131 662 1133

Little Monkeys

28 Kilmaurs Road, (off Dalkeith Road), Edinburgh EH16 5DP, UK – 0131 667 5544

I Have had my son at this nursery from the baby room now to the toddler room. He absolutely loves it and has come on leaps and bounds. The staff are lovely, especially Katrina in the baby room and Kirstin the manager. I now have another little girl and although this nursery is out of the way of my home since I'm no longer at work in town, I will definitely be putting my daughter here too. A lovely place for childcare and have been really flexible with me.

My husband and I have been delighted with Little Monkeys at Kilmaurs. Right from Day 1 we have been impressed with the enthusiasm and kindness shown by everyone. Our 2 children (aged 5 and now P1, and 2) have thoroughly enjoyed themselves and the activities on offer are always varied and stimulating. When we go on holiday our kids miss the staff! Real bonuses for us have been flexibility in hours, twice daily home cooked food on site, and a soft play room for burning off energy on rainy days. I cannot recommend this nursery highly enough!
