Fascinating place to wander around. Although it is only a little way outside the city centre of Edinburgh, it is like being in the countryside with the sound of the River Leith and the greenery around. Not a place I would drive to as it is quite narrow in places and quite confusing without a map. However a leisurely walk around is most recommended.

I’ve wanted to visit Dean Village ever since I first saw it in a post on Instagram. I made it there and it lived up to my expectations. Even with overcast weather and I myself was under the weather since landing in London a few days prior, it was a wonderful experience. The people are so warm and friendly too.
