This iReport is part of an assignment:
Edinburgh's Hidden Village
One "gem" that we always return to is the Dean Village, which is very close to the west end of the city center, yet not obvious to most tourists. As often as we can, we will walk the trails along the "Water of Leith" river and enjoy the sights, sounds, wildlife, etc.
If you get to Edinburgh, be sure to allow time to walk up Queensferry Street from the West End of Princes Street, then drop down Bell's Brae to the Dean Village. After exploring the village, take either the west path along the river to Murrayfield or the east trail to Stockbridge. If you have time, do both!
