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!

Building Societies

University of St Andrews

St Andrews KY16 9AJ, UK – 01334 476161

We got a lot of pleasure to visit the town and university. Have arrived independently by train from Edinburgh to Dundee and by bus to St. Andrews. Spent half of day here, but enough to get around and admire the charms of town. We had a snack in the cafeteria on the Market Street. I liked seaview The Scores and beach in St Andrews Pier. On our return way to the hotel we read a romantic story of the relationship between Prince William and Kate, who met in the university.

For some time I've been trying to acquire a book of the history of St Andrews - all of it not just the golf course as it goes back to Roman times therefore is of interest to me. Being there made me keener to learn more of this wonderful place. Can anyone help me with this ? Like who built the Swilcan bridge & when ? I live in Australia so getting there to make inquiries is a little difficult.

St Andrews Town Hall

Queen's Gardens, St Andrews KY16 9TA, UK – 01334 470770

Attending the local antique fair that operates on the occasional Saturday. Wonderful displays, really enjoyed it. It's quite an old building, so the vendors downstairs and the small cafe had a quite cool space, while upstairs was comfortably warm. The cafe looked like it had some nice soups and scones.

The Town Hall toilets are FREE for public use but isn’t well advertised.

Dental Surgeries

Gentle Dental Care

85 South St, St Andrews KY16 9QW, UK – 01334 475433

I’ve been delighted with all the treatment and care I have received from Gentle Dental Care in St. Andrews. After several visits during my time as a student at the university I’ve been made to feel very welcome and all treatments have been completed to a really high standard. The facilities are modern and comfortable and the knowledge and expertise of the entire staff is second to none. The aftercare service was also very thoughtful and I would thoroughly recommend Chris and his colleagues to anyone.

I was on holiday in Saint Andrews and my tooth broke - a big chunk came out! I was pretty nervous but the staff at Gentle Dental and Dr. Chris Pritchard made me feel at ease. Everyone was so nice, I think it was possibly the most relaxed I’ve ever been during a visit to the dentist. The filling Dr. Pritchard sculpted for me was not a temporary filling, he said it should get me through the week at the very least, but might hold up and work as a permanent filling, but he told me my dentist would probably want to replace it with something else. When I saw my dentist back home, at first he couldn’t even see which tooth had been broken! He really could not find it, and I mean with the little angled mirror and a little flashlight tool…finally I had to point to it. After two X-rays and some poking at it, my dentist determined that it was well done and would work perfectly fine; he saw no need to replace it. He seemed like he might have been a little bit jealous; at one point he asked me how flossing was going and I swear he seemed hopeful I would say it was a problem. But I explained that Dr. Pritchard had used dental floss on both sides of the tooth before the filling had finished setting to make sure I could floss around it. Truly it was a job well done. So thank you to Gentle Dental for solving my problem so skillfully and being so nice about it.

St Andrews Dental Care & Implant Clinic

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Stuart and his amazing team . I had a front tooth implant 2yrs ago . Which was carried out professionally and with kindness which in my view you don’t get the latter from every Dental practice. I must include all the girls and hygienist in this recommendation. Full marks in my view.

Very satisfied with everything: state of the art equipment, etc.

Pipeland Medical Practice

Largo Rd, St Andrews KY16 8AR, UK – 01334 476840

Very good surgery. Needed an emergency appointment as a visitor. Called and spoke to the receptionist, got a call back 5 minutes later from a doctor to discuss symptoms. He gave me an appointment for within the hour. Parking outside. Didn't have to wait long to see a helpful doctor and was next door at the pharmacy in no time.

Very good staff, both doctors and nurses. I’ve had a bad experience with a doctor, but as soon as I asked to be set up with someone different they immediately did. most of the staff is very prepared, understanding and helpful. The nurses are lovely and so is the vast majority of the doctors. I have to go pretty often for a long term impairment and I’ve never met such an understanding staff, not to talk about the fact I never had to pay for ANYTHING. I honestly don’t understand the poor reviews, but if you need medical help of any kind, give pipeland a shot because they’re very qualified.

Blackfriars Medical Practice

A915, St Andrews KY16 8AR, UK – 01334 477477

St Andrews Community Hospital

Largo Road, St Andrews, St. Andrews, Scotland KY16 8AR, UK – 01334 465656

The staff are really polite and very helpful and if u need there help they will help if they can

Very clean and nice facility; it's a great place for a scheduled in advanced routine appointment. Unfortunately there is a staggering shortage of doctors and extreme rigity in service; some appointments such as OB take up to 3 months to schedule. No ER, little parking, and closed on weekends it's a far cry from a full service hospital

Craigtoun Maternity Hospital (Disused)

St Andrews KY16 8NS, UK

An interesting place with some interesting history, I used to live next door to this hospital in late 90s and had the opportunity of getting inside through my work. Spent many hours wandering around inside, it is a building site now and would not advise entering it these days. There are Some ghost stories surrounding this building involving witchcraft and devil babies that seemingly have some half truths. Worth a look around in any case.

Very accomodating for gluten free. They adapted everything and everything tasted excellent. Outstanding service by the waiters.

The view is amazing, but the fish had too many bones. They don't debone any of their fish. Dessert was incredible.

The Seafood Ristorante

Bruce Embankment, St Andrews KY16 9AB, UK – 01334 479475

we went there for lunch and overall was very good. Missing a few more options in the menu though. The cod was good but could have been better. The sommelier is a must talk and his advice was key for having a delightful experience. Will recommend

Unbelievable views, very tasty food at a great price and exceptional service! What more could you want... already looking forward to going back next time!
