Edinburgh University Students' Association

5/2 Bristo Square, Edinburgh EH8 9AL, UK – 0131 650 2656

the student advice place is a life saver! hard working, professional staff who will help you navigate the muddy waters of university bureaucracy. I would recommend going to see them if you're struggling on your own. Special thanks to Sarah for helping me sort out my finance situation.

Great place to sit down and take a break. You can bring your own food and warm it at the microwave or buy some at the cafe. Some confortable coaches to relax and plenty of space. Overall, a nice addition to the university of Edinburgh facilities!

Local Chambers of Commerce for EH16 5PA. 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!
City Chambers

253 High St, Edinburgh EH1 1YJ, UK – 0131 200 2000

The City Chambers was erected off the Royal Mile, quite deep that it is hard to notice. A quadrangle with a stone War Memorial and a bronze statue of Alexander The Great taming his horse Bucephalus precedes the edifice.

Once an official building now opened to public due to what lies beneath the City Chambers on the Royal Mile. It is deepest Edinburgh's secret - a warren of hidden streets where real people lived, worked and died between the 17th and the 19th centuries. It used to be closed to public due to belonging to being under official building and therefore off limits but now it is open to public! and what a fantastic tour it is. I think it was my highlight in Scotland. These underground closes and witness some of the dramatic episodes and extraordinary apparitions from this site's fascinating and historically rich past. Mary King's Close -Buried deep beneath Edinburgh's Royal Mile lies the city's deepest secret warren of hidden streets that has remained frozen in time since the 17th century.

Marchmont Dental Care

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

Amazing service. Lovely staff. Beautiful space.

NHS and private dental care available. Friendly staff.

Chalmers Dental Centre

3 Chalmers St, Edinburgh EH3 9EW, UK – 0131 536 4800

Quite a long 2.5-hour wait between reception and treatment, but no complaints otherwise. Extraction was dealt with efficiently by nice friendly staff in a very modern treatment room.

Calm and professional staff. First class equipment

Pearl Dental Clinic

23 Duddingston Park S, Edinburgh EH15 3NY, UK – 0131 669 9977

Great family dentist. Cant recommend them enough. I have no problem getting kids or a nervous wife to attend. Always treated with kindness and compassion.

Fantastic dental practice. All staff are always really professional, kind and helpful - as the patient you feel they really do care about you. The dentist we see is brilliant with children. The dentist always takes the time to explain treatment and options. If any of my family have ever needed an emergency dental appointment they have always managed to fit one in. If you leave a message on the answerphone a member of staff always rings back quickly. Thank you so much

Dentists

Parkside Dental Practice

1 Parkside Terrace, Edinburgh EH16 5BN, UK – 0131 667 0500

Great dental practice, highly recommend it. They care about the condition of your teeth and provide tailored advice. Good price and great customer service.

Highly recommend to friends and others. My first visit to the dentist in over 4 years and I am very lucky was in the safe and gentle hands of Arundem and Kasha. They were both very friendly and let me know exactly what they were doing beforehand to make me feel comfortable. Can't wait for my next appointment! While I had a few minor hiccups trying to register as I am on a working holiday visa, it was easily resolved without having to brandish my passport, visa, BRP card or proof that I have paid into IHS. Such a delightful contrast to the racist overtones I've been getting from trying to register with GP practices.

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!

Lauriston Dental Care

126 Lauriston Pl, Edinburgh EH3 9HX, UK – 0131 229 3039

Umara is a lovely dentist, I have extreme anxiety and phobia of the dentist but she is great at putting you at ease and explaining everything clearly and listening to your worries. I would recommend this dentist :)

Fantastic staff !! Shane is a superb dentist and Jane is a top hygienist. I would highly recommend this practice.

Inchpark Surgery

10 Marmion Cres, Edinburgh EH16 5QU, UK – 0131 666 2121

always lovely. super doctors

Excellent.

Southern Medical Group

322 Gilmerton Rd, Edinburgh EH17 7PR, UK – 0131 664 2148

Very happy with this place. All of the doctors and nurses that i have seen have been very friendly. I need regular blood tests and they are excellent at drawing blood. Never a long wait at appointment and quick and easy to get refills. Very happy with this GP.

Cannot disagree more with a couple of these posts here! Seriously, would you rather see a Doctor or worry about the decor? I have been with this surgery a long time and have never had cause for complaint, the staff from the receptionists to nurses and the doctors have never been anything but friendly and professional at all times! Perhaps a couple of the reviewers should change to a new practice that is newly built where the staff have the time away from other patients to hold their hand? Check out the other surgeries in your area and their ratings and that will bring you back down to earth!

Gracemount Medical Practice

24 Gracemount Dr, Edinburgh EH16 6RN, UK – 0131 664 2377

Don't listen to these bad reviews. Yesterday needed an urgent appointment, after 4 tries got through and had an appointment at nine. Needed a repeat last minute appointment today too and again got through after a few tries. Treatment from the GPs on both days was brilliant so we'll done and thank you. Only downside is finding a parking space as the car park is shared by a gym. You just need to be patient and you'll get one.

Pros: Staff are excellent and very friendly. I've never had an issue with them and always helpful. Cons: Appointment system isn't the finest. I'm informed that there are early appointments bookable in advance some days by some doctors from 7am. Aimed at people that work, but seem to get filled by older people that (I can't confirm) don't work. Must be the only doctors you can't book an appointment for more than 1 day in advance for everything else. So need to stand outside at 7.45am or get thumb and neck ache pressing redial by phone, to have to redial the next day.

Fantastic care to patients

amazing

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

Find Local Churches & Places of Worship

City of Edinburgh Methodist Church

25 Nicolson Square, Edinburgh EH8 9BX, UK – 0131 662 8635

Venue was bright, well lit, books well displayed, volunteers welcoming. Cafe and toilet facilities very good. However the brightest star has to be reserved for the book pricing. It is so much easier for sorters, purchasers and counters to handle a limited range of prices. My only regret was I didn't come earlier in the week or get a chance to return (family commitments) a mistake I won't make next year, Elizabeth - wee wifey overdressed for the temperature!

This is a bright, white, friendly jewel of a place.

Catholic Church of the Sacred Heart

28 Lauriston St, Edinburgh EH3 9DJ, UK – 0131 229 9821

Arguably the most magnificent church in the Archdiocese. The lunchtime Mass was for me personally a refuge from the stresses and strains of the working day.

Quiet atmosphere for meditative prayers, daily mass and confession

Mayfield Salisbury Parish Church

18 W Mayfield, Edinburgh EH9 1TQ, UK – 0131 667 1522

This has been the family church for 5 generations and it is still very much a family community church.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Edinburgh

Howies Restaurant

10-14 Victoria St, Edinburgh EH1 2HG, UK – 0131 225 1721

Wonderful experience! The place was packed on a Thursday night but the service was quick and friendly. Everyone in my party except myself had the salmon and they all loved it. I had the beetroot risotto which was wonderful. We had dessert as well which was also delicious. Prices were a bit high but not too bad considering the area. I'd definitely visit again.

I wanted to get away from the crowds on the Royal Mile so I stopped in here to get a late lunch/early dinner. Didn't have to wait long to get a table as I was on my own. It's a cozy spot and the staff is friendly. Everything I ordered was well made, beautiful and tasted great. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again.

Blonde Restaurant

71-75 St. Leonard's St, Edinburgh EH8 9QR, UK – 0131 668 2917

Excellent service and excellent food! Really quite a lovely place well worth the visit. Good prices, lovely wine and a varied menu. Would definitely recommend for any occasion.

Went here for a Sunday evening meal as a family group of 4 on the strength of reviews, and we were not disappointed. The decor and lighting is pleasant and modern. We all chose from the bargain menu, the options were varied enough for all our tastes, the portions generous (or standard? Not small anyway) and the food delicious. The single hardworking waitress provided good service, and our food orders arrived swiftly. We'll be back, found a new favourite restaurant!

The Grain Store

30 Victoria St, Edinburgh EH1 2JW, UK – 0131 225 7635

What a brilliant find for fab good and service. From the moment we entered the restaurant we were made to feel at ease. Paul after doing his gardening was very helpful and talked us through the menu. As I don't like fat he liaised with the chef to help with my choice. The food was excellent and the staff amazing. Thank you for the best dining experience

Lady luck prevailed, we (2 of us) didn't have a reservation (in August) and wandered up the stairs. Another couple couldn't be reached for their reservation and we got the table. Can't say enough good things about the atmosphere, the food, and of course the service. This was our favorite spot in Edinburgh, the venison and the fish were great meals. The walls, candles, and windows just felt so historic. Bundle it all up and it's truly delightful.

Nursery and Preschools

Strawberry Hill Nursery

Such a lovely nursery :)

Lovely place.

St Margarets Nursery

10 Craigmillar Park, Edinburgh EH16 5NE, UK – 0131 667 0778

I have worked at St Margarets for several years and love working there. The staff are great and we all work well as a team. The large garden is amazing and the children thrive outside as well as inside. The job is demanding but very rewarding and I have formed very good bonds with the children and the parents 💕

St Margaret’s Nursery is a brilliant place to work I have been there nearly 2 years. I am part of an amazing team and they have helped me grow in confidence. I’m about to start my SVQ Level 4 management have been really supportive and encouraging me to take the next step to work towards level 4. I love working in the baby room and seeing them grow and progress I definitely recommend this nursery.

Good solid school

Liberton High School

328 Gilmerton Rd, Edinburgh EH17 7PT, UK – 0131 664 7514

As a student at LHS I don't understand the bad reviews it's not a bad high school yeah it has a bad reputation but it's still a not a bad school. Edit: it’s a good school, polite students mostly. I’m moving into my final year of the school have been at the school since S1, can say some bad things about it but not a lot. Yes some students are rude but not all. All we want is are school to have people give it a try, that’s all. Over all I’m just saying take the review from a student not a parent who has a child in this school. Thank you 🙂

Liberton is a good school. It may have it's faults like other schools., but it has some of the finest pupils and teachers, that I have had the honor to know.
