Part of Edinburgh's World Heritage Site and just five minutes walk from Princes Street and the centre of Edinburgh.

This leafy, historic enclave was once a separate village from Edinburgh and a thriving milling hub. Now, many of the old mill buildings, warehouses and workers' homes have been converted into modern day property.
 

If you take a walk or cycle along The Water of Leith, which runs through Dean Village en-route from Leith to Balerno, you will come to the Dean Bridge, designed by Thomas Telford and opened in 1833. You can also see St. Bernard's Well, inspired by an Italian temple and site of healing waters. And if you crave more stunning architecture then a must-visit is The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, which also encompasses former orphanage - The Dean Gallery.
