Tranquil place which is also a residential area. A few minutes away from the hustle bustle of the city yet at a distance where you can easily reach by walking. This is a picturesque place with small houses each being unique in it's structure. It feels like a different world. There are no facilities for toilet as it's a residential area. You can stroll around and it does not take more than 1 hour to cover Dean village and click pictures. It is listed in top 10 places to see in Edinburgh. The entire place is covered with carved stones and vintage structures.

The place is not far from Edinburgh downtown, maybe 15 minutes away and worth the time. If the city looks like the scenery from and old movie, this tiny village takes you back on time. Adorable, peaceful, green. Lovely!!

Gorgeous architecture and narrow cobbled streets. These photos are Dean Village on a dreich day - still beautiful. It can get quite busy so I'd recommend going early, and the access I used from the main road was down a steep side street, not too arduous. Definitely worth a stroll over if you have some free time.
