Although only a short walk from Edinburgh's bustling West End, the Dean Village is a calm and quiet oasis for those who decide to visit. Located next to the Water of Leith, the Dean Village was once home to a number of industrial mills but is now a residential hub offering scenic views and it's a great spot to sit and relax having grabbed a coffee or sandwich en route from Edinburgh Castle. Wander around the cobbled streets and see if you can spot a Heron feeding in the river. You can also join the Water of Leith Walkway here that stretches from Currie in the south west of Edinburgh all the way to Leith in the north east. The Dean Village offers some wonderful photo opportunities and has become a popular spot for Instagrammers in recent years! (Photo Credit: Clark Van Der Beken,
