Edinburgh Banks

Some of these banks have merged - the obvious examples being NatWest and Royal Bank of Scotland or HBOS (Halifax-Bank of Scotland) with LloydsTSB. Since the new LloydsTSB megabank has retained the brands of the original, individual banks, they are listed separately here.

You should be aware that the Financial Services Compensation Scheme only covers your personal deposits up to £85,000 per individual institution, irrespective of the number of accounts you have with that institution. Banks do fail as the Icesave debacle showed, so play safe.
