Built in the 1880's as model housing for local workers, it adds to the picturesque charm of the area. A little short walk from the village is the Dean Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art. Both impressive classical buildings in their own right, now converted to art galleries.

Lovely quaint “village” along the river, with a beautiful walk alongside water and historical buildings (include stairs and possibly sloppy soil). Reachable by walk from Edinburgh city center (around 30 minutes). April 2019 : path along the river was partially closed.

Nice hidden place in the middle of Edinburgh. When you walk along Dean village, it seems that you are somewhere else. Is a nice way to spend outdoors, but much better to have a walk when is sunny. If you continue walking up the river, then you can follow the stairs... Up stairs, you will find a cemetery, cross it, after that the national gallery and a beautiful park opposite it. If you continue walking, across the street there is another lovely green area, which I don't remember the name. With a little lake, nice to go for a picnic or just to get relaxed lying on the grass :)

Oh my gosh, it is such a beautiful site of the town with colorful houses and a range of architectural styles displayed. Walked down through a lovely green riverside trail from Circus Lane and crossing under the bridge is also an awesome walking trip.
