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!

Local Chambers of Commerce for EH15 2NP. 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!
Seafield Community Recycling Centre

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

What can I say? This is a good place to recycle those unwanted bulky and difficult to recycle items. It is a bit out of the way, near Portobello Beach. We dumped sound equipment, old mobile phones, crockery, and lamps. They have domestic recycling spots for old mattresses, televisions, PC equipment, soil, iron, plastics, etc.. It doesn't cost you anything to recycle (we did it by using a taxi, so that was our cost) and you will be glad you did get rid of some stuff like we did. NOTE: if you are recycling difficult to process stuff, or commercial waste, contact the people on the site and they will advise if there is a cost involved Use it, as it is better than being a dumb dumper.

Easy to drop off quickly, helpful staff but dont bring a van or wear tradies overalls as they have strict rules regards trade waste

Dr. Kevin Houston has done a great job on my teeth, thanks.

Craigentinny Dental Care

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

As a nervous patient I found Martin's calm and soothing manner very reassuring and the work he completed on my composite veneers was exceptional. I must say I've found all the team there to be lovely. Highly recommended

I cannot recommend Fraser Hendrie highly enough. He is an excellent dentist, professional and kind. He always provides explanations allowing you to discuss options and make an informed choice. I'm not 'afraid of the dentist' but can imagine he'd be an excellent choice if you were, putting you at ease and considering your needs.

Portobello Dental Clinic

274 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 2AT, UK – 0131 669 1193

Lovely staff great facilities and perfect high street location ground floor. Owner has clearly spent a lot of time and effort to invest in the modern attractive and calming environment.Everyone makes you feel welcome . Perfect for families.NHS registration was available. Would highly recommend

I registered myself and my family and I'm really impressed by the level of care. Staff is very helpful, really nice atmosphere overall.

The Baronscourt Surgery

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

I have never had a problem getting an appointment and while I'm at the surgery it's always been pleasant and everyone kind. I'm not much of a Google reviewer but the rating is unfairly low and I thought I should try to even it out. I've been with the surgery for over a year and have had a baby (so quite a few appointments) and have nothing to complain about.

St Triduana's Medical Practice

St Triduana's Medical Practice, 54 Moira Park, Edinburgh EH7 6RU, UK – 0131 657 3341

Great Practice. Staff is very helpful. I can't say enough good things about them.

The groups are fantastic, and the doctors too..I recommend this GP in anyways

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.

Im from co durham and went too edinburgh for weekend on the sat I fell down, friends called ambulance which took me to edinburgh infirmary where I found out I had broken my hip. Next day i had an operation and had to stop in for a week, l couldnt fault any of my care every one was so helpfull, thank you all.

Some bad reviews are given because people don't understand how the NHS works, therefore giving the hospital staff a bad name when they try their utmost. I have slogged my guts day in day out 12, 13, 14+ hours to look after YOUR family member. I have held their hand when they are suffering.. Wiped their tears away when they're upset... Repositioned them in bed even when they can't communicate what part of them is sore... Sat with them as they are leaving this world. I have been at their beck and call during their hospital stay to help them on their way to recovery. I have hit that emergency buzzer when they've not responded and jumped up to do chest compressions. I've worked every Christmas/new year/birthday because hospitals don't shut on the holidays. And I've smiled all the way through it because I care. They're anguish is my anguish. We are dangerously understaffed at times to the point of breaking but we can't just turn off. We are paid nowhere near what we should be. We are kicked, punched, spat on, peed on etc you name it. Throughout every grade of staff from the bottom of the fish pond to the top jolly, we all have to start somewhere, somehow. And where we are, we are because we want to be. We want to try to do our best for you. Not everyone can have the same open mindedness. Try though. Try.

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.

Junkbuster Recycling

8C Bath St, Edinburgh EH15 1EY, UK – 07541 131418

I am very happy with Junk Busters. They quoted accurately over the phone and came out the next day within the time they advised! They were very quick and the quote was substantially lower than others we had received. Added bonus to know that we aren't contributing more to landfill! Thanks guys!

These guys done my grans house/garage/garden, everything went so smoothly and was done so quickly I couldn't believe it. We were doing it on a budget so were worried about pricing but there was no need to be worried. the price was brilliant! I would highly recommend Alfie and his team!

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.

Much needed in the area, good pizza and handy location. If you are going on the weekend - book. Gets VERY busy. Good for take away if you live in the area. Staff have always been great. Kids love watching the pizza kitchen.

Food was good and the staff were great. Very busy on a Saturday afternoon, booking advised.

The service was fantastic the waiter could not have been anymore helpful and the food was spot on, drinks were lovely, no complaints whatsoever, I highly recommend this place. I hope this standard continues.

Food is good but service is invariably slow. The servers however are friendly and accommodating.

Nando's Edinburgh - Fort Kinnaird

Unit B, Fort Kinnaird Retail Park, Edinburgh EH15 3RD, UK – 0131 657 2625

So I haven't been here often since I thought they only did chicken but turns out they have vegan options and even a folder which confirms which meals are and which aren't which was great! So the food was brilliant and it wasn't to expensive. My only thing is that the wait is very long (I phoned well ahead and still had a good wait), as it's very busy and there didn't seem to be any people bringing the food out as by the kitchen area there were so many plates of food just sitting there, and I'm pretty sure the whole time I was waiting my take away meal was sitting there as it wasn't as hot when I got it. Thankfully my meal wasn't dependant on being hot so still tasted great but just keep that in mind when you order.

Fantastic food. Always hot and fresh. The same great tast as every time.
