    A walk along the edge of Dean Village to Leith River is a real pleasure. Quiet and very pleasant. Place where you make beautiful pictures.

  • Extremely beautiful, peaceful gem not far from the city center. Ended up wandering here when I was bored and it ended up being such a pleasant surprise. I highly recommend visiting if you have free time.
  • Great little village with fantastic walking paths along the Leith. The downtown area has an eclectic mix of shops and dining. Just a few minutes walk from the New Town West End it's worth a detour if you're in the area.
  • A peacefully hidden gem so close to the city centre. Really can be appreciated from the inner courtyard at Well Court, with the scene something fitting a Harry Potter movie, worthy of its World Heritage status. Always showed friends here when they've come to visit.
  • Absolutely stunning. It's essentially a beautiful, quaint village hidden perfectly in the middle of the city. Great for walking
  • Incredibly beautiful! Especially if you are a massive fan of Hogsmeade and everything Harry Potter related. Walking through the streets of Dean Village and looking at those awesome buildings makes you feel like wandering through a different time or dimension.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
