Dean Village

At the heart of Edinburgh on the Water of Leith, lies the former grain milling centre called Dean Village. Since it is situated about 30 metres below other parts of Ediburgh, the village was named "Dean," which means deep valley. Dean Village is considered an Edinburg World Heritage location because it possesses a variety of architecture that reflects the long history and various cultural influences that once dominated the village. Although it still maintains some of the old mill warehouses and red sandstone cottages, the village is now just residential community that offers a serene and green atmosphere.

  • Visit the distinct landmarks of Dean Village in Edinburg including the building at St. Bernard's Well, built over a natural spring in 1789 by Alexander Nasysmith and traditionally thought by locals to be a source of healing waters.
  • Follow the Water of Leith Walkway starting from Balerno and through to Dean Village to visit the Dean Gallery and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art along the Belford Road and Dean Cemetery.
  • Explore the Well Court, one of Edinburg's World Heritage Buildings, built in the 1880's and featuring a clock tower, a font, and a communal courtyard.

The Waverly Railway Station is over a mile away from Dean Village and is the nearest station to the area. It is the main station in Edinburgh as serves regional routes from London and other parts of Scotland and England. From the station, you can walk to Dean Village by going west along Princess Street, passing St.'s John Church and turning right following Queensferry Road leading to Dean Bridge. There are also regular Lothian buses that stop at Dean Bridge. From the bridge, you can walk down Bell's Brae and follow the Dean Path to reach the village proper.
