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!

Also see below for all the Building Societies around Your Postcode with their contact details. Just click through to go to a map, street views, reviews and a link to their own websites.

Local Chambers of Commerce for ZE1 0HX. These can be an extraordinarily effective way of getting into the business community and / or getting things done.

Dental Surgeries

Dental Shetland Surgery

28 North Rd, Lerwick, Shetland ZE1 0NQ, UK – 01595 695553

I would highly recommend Dental Shetland. What a suburb practice. All the staff are very professional, from the receptionist to the principle, all made me feel comfort and at ease from my first appointment. Not only are they excellent at their profession but they seemed to be personally interested in what was best for me and met my concerns with care and concern. Well done to you all. My fears of the dentist have been concurred. Well almost :)

Have been going to this practice for the last 8 years & have only had good, professional, informative & helpful treatment. Had my teeth straightened & bridges put in place of teeth I was born without. Could not recommend them more highly. The previous reviewer must have got her signals crossed.

Great, family atmosphere and professional help and service! Highly recommended!

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Lerwick

fjara cafe restaurant bar, Lerwick

Mainland, Shetland ZE1 0GF, UK – 01595 697388

Trendy, good food, nice coffee, good selection of cakes. Reasonably priced. Right on the water's edge with a good view over the bay. Ample parking, can get busy at peak times. L

Food was awesome, service was done polite and cheerfully. Had to wait a bit for stuff but that's through how busy they were, which shows just how popular the place. Did not mined waiting at all as the food and drinks were well worth the wait. Been when less busy and it's a faster service and but just like anywhere you go at lunch time there can be a small wait. I would well recommend the cafe to anyone and it's a bit more classy than the rest in town. This makes it even more popular and the views out the window take your mined off waiting for food, most of the time really fast service and considering everything is made fresh even at the busiest times because of this I don't mind waiting an extra few min than normal for brilliant food. Stunning views and a stunning cafe to visit. Trust me when I say it's awesome.
