It is another nice place to visit particularly when you are near the new town. Edinburgh is small but shows me constantly unexpected b beautiful things. This is one of those examples. The buildings here are different from those in the old town. There is a small stream, which is said to flow down to Leith, the east of Edinburgh. In the dean village, you may take a walk around it, and may go head following the stream. Then you will reach out of the village, and will arrive the new town. The last thing is that the village will surprise you by its height. It is located where you go down further from the new town. It was very interesting at least to me because it completes my impression that Edinburgh is three dimensional city. You keep walk up and down. :)

Felt like I'd entered a portal to the past, to a wonderfully Medieval and flowery setting, with stone paths going under the village, following a river right beside fancy houses, some newly built, some retaining their stone finish, much like the whole of Edinburgh. This place feels like a fairytale story.
