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!

Duddingston Dental Practice

2 Southfield Loan, Edinburgh EH15 1QR, UK – 0131 669 8829

Excellent dental practice, been going here for years. Have used the Dentist and Hygenist. Always friendly and professional

Craigentinny Dental Care

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

When I go to the dentist I look calm, but that belies the terror I feel. Martin Morley at Craigentinny Dental seemed to understand my fear and never did anything that I wasn't comfortable with. I had sedation for some treatment, it was an excellent option. Martin and the sedation dental nurse Maureen were great - reassuring, calm, supportive. Thank you, I might even go back!

After being scared of the dentist for many years, I contacted Craigentinny dental and from day one they made me feel calm and relaxed. Although I still have that slight fear, I actually look forward to going to the dentist now. Sedation was an amazing way for me to start my process of being in a dentist again so for anyone who is fearing the dentist or needing dental treatment I couldn’t recommend somewhere highly enough.

Craigmillar Medical Group

106 Niddrie Mains Rd, Edinburgh EH16 4DT, UK – 0131 322 2111

Very good and helpful. Recently moved to another area and a different practice, but I now realise how good the surgery, staff and doctors are.

A good family health centre

The Baronscourt Surgery

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

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

Inchpark Surgery

Visited a friend here today. Very easy to find. The car park is enourmas. Not sure about cost of parking since we were on motorbikes and they are free to park. Place was busy but we found the signage to find wards etc excellent. We did get lost but staff were very helpful and all do a fantastic job, both of looking after patients, and of keeping visitors right.

That was our 2 visit on A&E department today. We would like to thank you Dr Phillip Copley such a good care for my partner. All the test has been done and at the end we left this place sorted. This doctor was very helpful, professional and good organized. His calm attitude made me feel safe even after such a traumatic morning. Thanks again for looking after me, my partner and our baby!!!

Helpful and friendly staff. I look forward going there to see how the garden staff have created with unwanted goods has developed, they have made a dull place to an entertaining place.

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.

Junkbuster Recycling

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

Alfie at Junk Buster was great. Fast, professional service and removed the grand piano from my classroom within 20 minutes. I would highly recommend!

Would highly recommend these guys. I called up Alfie last minute looking for help with clearing out my rental flat and attic prior to selling, he was very responsive and was able to fit me in quickly. The three guys came on time this morning and they quickly and efficiently cleared everything (Even though there was more than I expected - sorry!!). Nice guys as well. Top job!

Seafield Community 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

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

Reds

254 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 2AT, UK – 0131 669 5558

A lovely sunny Sunday meant that most places on the promenade were packed solid. A quick search with Google Maps and we found Reds. When we got there it was quiet and the young lady who greeted us was very accommodating. The food was freshly prepared and very tasty. The Kids menu & portions were spot on. Lovely staff, great food. Family friendly. Highly recommended.

Very nice restaurant. Clean and staff very pleasant. Food was gorgeous and hot. Excellent choice on menu especially if gluten free. Reasonably priced. Will return again.

Pizza Express

Leisure Quarter, Fort Kinnaird Shopping Centre, Edinburgh EH15 3RD, UK – 0131 669 9888

I have been here a couple of times and I have to say the service is always amazing. Even when super crowded , staff always keeps their cool and handle everyone. I love the salads , the pizzas, the bruschettas, well I guess I just love it there!

Nice, friendly staff. Good place to meet friends.

Rhubarb

Prestonfield House, Priestfield Road, Edinburgh EH16 5UT, UK – 0131 225 1333

5 stars for atmosphere 4 stars for food! What a lovely surprise we stumbled upon. After forgetting to make reservations on a Saturday evening, out Concierge was able to get us a late night table here, what a treat! The grounds and hotel itself are stunning, unique, and intriguing. Lovely cocktails to be had on your walk around the gardens so be sure to arrive early to fully enjoy. Dinner was lovely but the wine selection even better. Would certainly recommend this spot to anyone looking to feel as if you have escaped the bustle of city center.

Secret source of fine dining off the beaten path. The ambience is wonderful and it was a memorable evening. You must go.

Nursery and Preschools

The Honest Toun Nursery

11-19 Stoneybank Terrace, Musselburgh EH21 6LY, UK – 0131 665 5353

I can't recommend this nursery highly enough. My 16 month old loves going to the nursery in the mornings. The staff are super helpful and very knowledgable and are happy to give advice if asked. We get a thorough 1 to 1 with a staff member at the end of each day including a completed book. All the kids seem happy here and they do lots and lots of activities. I particularly like the fact that they organise external companies to visit weekly such as music class. Nursery manager encourages parent interaction and lots opportunities to be involved with the nursery.

Forbes Childrens Nursery

12 Claremont Park, Edinburgh EH6 7, UK – 0131 553 5068

Having found out from friends who were parents that the waiting lists for nurseries in Edinburgh was CRAZY long I set about looking for nurseries when I was 6 months pregnant. I lived and worked in Leith so I was looking for a nursery in this neck of Edinburgh's woods. I visited a few nurseries and for me one of the really important factors was outdoor space. I lived in a flat on a main road and I really wanted my little girl to be able to go out and play like I did as a girl. So, when I stumbled upon Forbes Nursery, I fell in love. The nursery is placed opposite Leith Links in what I assume was previously a very very large home / guest house. The nursery is deceptively huge - there are only 4 doors and stairs leading off the entrance way, but it is very tardis like - rooms leading from other rooms. Plenty of space indoors for little tots. An abundance of indoor activities to keep them busy and developing. BUT the clincher - the garden is ENORMOUS! Boasting half an acre of land with lots of little sections, a secret garden, a vegetable patch that the children help to plant, various play park areas, again sectioned for different ages and stages. Lots of outdoor toys - kid heaven! Oh the fun and adventures I could have had in that garden if I was a child again! My daughter is now 2 and has been going for over a year - she loves it - she doesn't want to leave. The carers are so friendly, helpful, caring and informative. My daughter's development has come on leaps and bounds since starting, she's confident, happy, bright and has made so many friends. We have now moved out of the area, but I wouldn't dream of changing her nursery - I cannot recommend this place highly enough!
