Dean Village, Edinburgh
The Village of Dean lies to the north west of Edinburgh city centre. It is located on the Water of Leith and its name means "deep valley". It has a long history as a milling village, stretching back over 800 years. In 1836 Thomas Telford built the Dean Bridge across the gorge near the village. Since the 1970s it has acquired a reputation for a quiet and tranquil place to live, close to the city centre.
