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!

Craigentinny Dental Care

57 Duddingston Crescent, Edinburgh EH15 3AY, UK – 0131 669 2114

My son, who has Moebius Syndrome, has always had to take extra special care of his teeth. Under the professional care of John Booth, he recommended at 13 yrs old that George should have a brace fitted. He had months of wearing a retainer to adjust his bottom jaw by 10mm before the train track brace was fitted. After a year and a half of careful maintenance, the brace was removed. His teeth were beautifully straight and white apart from a tiny mark on his front tooth (not caused by any decay but kind of like a birthmark but in his tooth). Obviously after such a long period of taking extra special care of his teeth, my son asked if there was anything that could be done to remove the mark. John took time to explain the options to my son and I and has just completed a procedure to remove the stain. My son is over the moon and I would just like to pass on my heart felt thanks to John Booth and his amazing team.

I've been a patient at Craigentinny Dental practice since around 1990 after many years avoiding dentistry following a botched wisdom tooth extraction in my youth. It's simply a fantastic practice, and often feels more like visiting friends than going to the dentist! Everyone, from the reception staff to the dentists go that extra mile to create a warm and welcoming environment. which goes a long way towards allaying any waiting-room anxiety. As for the treatment itself, it's always been first-rate and accompanied by a comprehensive explanation of what's involved. My husband and son both attend, and although we live more than 50 miles from the practice, we wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.

The Baronscourt Surgery

89 Northfield Broadway, Edinburgh EH8 7RX, UK – 0131 657 5444

Just recently moved to the area, and was fairly ominous about registering at the practice after reading alot of reviews but I can honestly say from my first encounter the staff receptionist included were all very polite and extremely helpful. I wanted to make an appointment after registering but was informed it takes two days to be registered. After explaining the situation the receptionist very kindly said she would get me registered so I could make an appointment the following day. The next day my appointment was made without fuss and I was seen by a very professional doctor.

I have been with this surgery all my life, almost 34 years. The original old doctors were amazing but they have now all retired or left. There are a couple of doctors there who are very helpful but like other reviews have said, the receptionists let the place down. They sound aggressive over the phone, answer you back face to face when I was nothing but polite. No need for this. Asking simple questions seem like an inconvenience. I have waited an hour and a half past my appointment time to find the receptionist hadn't marked me as waiting. This has happened twice that i can think of. I don't think I've ever been taken on time. 30 mins plus past your appointment time is normal but don't dare be 1 min late or the aggressive receptionist will have something to say! If the receptionists were as they should be then i would have gave 4 stars but i have instead given a generous 3 stars

Southfield Medical Practice

132 Mountcastle Dr S, Edinburgh EH15 3LL, UK – 0131 549 7340

I have been a patient at Southfield Medical Practice for over ten years. I phoned all the local medical practices before making my choice, and I based the choice on the phone manner of the receptionists, who are kind, friendly and helpful, and the ease of their procedure for getting repeat prescription. So far, I have always found the doctors and the nurse courteous, helpful and appropriate, and the receptionists are absolutely lovely. One of the receptionists has worked there for years and she's kind, warm and friendly, with a lovely smile which makes every visit a social, enjoyable pleasure.

Very lovely lady at the front desk

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.

Royal Infirmary Edinburgh

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

Have to praise the staff at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary. From the moment mum was taken in on Monday, the care and attention she received was outstanding. Particularly the nurses of base 4 in the Acute Medical unit. Those girls were awesome. They made a difficult week much easier to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The whole family was looked after and mum got the best care possible. Words cannot express how grateful we are xx ❤

Couldn't be more happier with the care i received from the Royal this morning. I had a check up to see if everything was okay and Cathy one of the student nurses was so helpful and very efficient. Very friendly. All the best with your future. Xx

Absolutely fantastic care from all the midwives at Simpson. They couldn't have been more kind and caring at a difficult time for our family. We'll never forget it.

super convenient for.. absolutely no-one

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.

Household Waste Recycling Centre

Fillyside Rd, Edinburgh EH7 6RD, UK – 0131 529 3030

I have always found most of the staff here very helpful. However, I tried to phone direct about something and was sent to a general council number and put on one of the council's interminable loops of numbers to press - none of which were relevant to my query. A direct number and a person to speak to would be far more useful.

Helpful staff! Nice layout. Very quick

Junkbuster Recycling

8C Bath St, Edinburgh EH15 1EY, UK – 0131 210 0102

Fantastic hard working people. Great value service. Life savers to help get the house cleared for a move. Really friendly helpful people - couldn’t have managed without them Quite simply, excellent in every way!

My initial call was dealt with promptly & efficiently and a date/time arranged that suited me. Alfie and the team arrived on time and removed unwanted furniture quickly and with a smile :-) I was assured that if it could not be reused elsewhere it would be properly recycled. I'd have no hesitation in using their friendly service again. Thanks guys.

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

Bonoful Restaurant -

13-17 Brighton Pl, Edinburgh EH15 1LH, UK – 0131 669 8000

After being recommended by a friend to do so, my wife and I visited the Bonoful restaurant in Portobello last night. We were very glad that we did as the service was impeccable from start to finish, including personal recommendations on what dishes to eat from the Restaurant Manager. We were glad of the help in choosing, as my wife and I both agreed that the food was without doubt among the best Indian / Bangladeshi Cuisine that we have ever sampled. Fresh tasting sauces, and melt in the mouth meat, all topped off with amazing flavour. They also have a great drinks and wine selection. We will definitely be back, and would urge anyone else to visit too, so that they can taste the amazing food that the Bonoful has to offer.

Food delicious, service great. Not the cheapest but it's a nice well kept place although you wouldn't know from the outside. Recommended!

Pizza Express

Nice clean restaurant, good food, offers really good. We had 2 mains for £10.00. Staff really friendly and helpful. We visit on a regular basis as we love the atmosphere in this restaurant.

We went for my sisters birthday lunch the first guy we were greeted by seemed a bit grumpy however the next guy who we think was the manager was great and very friendly and happy. The waitress was great too. First time here but will definitely be back great job!!!

Beefeater The Lady Nairne

Always liked the Ladynairn but on the last couple of visits there were a lot of things not available on the menu (very early in the evening). I chose the Caeser Salad which had a good portion of chicken but the lettuce was warm and the only other thing in the dish was croutons. Dont think I will be ordering it again!
