What a beautiful track surrounded by nature. Loved to walk here. A natural place close to city center.

I know that this place does not have the grandeur and robust, clean appearance of the city center or whatnot, but Dean Village is by far my favorite place in Edinburgh. It's one stunning location that has a small town feel while being in very close proximity to the services within the larger, central portion of the city. It mostly sits below the bigger Edinburgh buildings nearby, and a river passes through the town as well, both of which contribute to drowning out much of the nearby noise. The buildings here are stylistic and charming, and have an aged but well-maintained quality to them (some are more modern, but still fit in well), and there's plenty of vegetation that makes the area feel even cheerier. The bridges that are a part of Dean Village or are in close proximity to it are as equally stunning and maintained as the rest of the village, and from my experience, the people here are exceptionally friendly. Please give this place a visit

The best place to live. Just beautiful! Green, peaceful and yet bursting into life with people out and about. Water of Leith never fails to surprise you; small waterfalls, birds, skies and the bounty of Nature along with some man-made architectural treasures. Must be visited!
