Artist's Description

The junction of Bell’s Brae and Hawthornbank Lane in the very pretty Dean Village, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Few tourists know that 15 minutes away from Princes Street, the main shopping street in Edinburgh, Scotland, lies the secluded Dean Village. Once a successful milling community, the area was once associated with poverty and decay but the buildings have been turned into designer flats and the village is now a popular residential area.

The name Dean means ‘deep valley’ as the village lies 30 meters below the rest of Edinburgh. This makes is quite unique and particularly tranquil considering it is virtually at the heart of Scotland’s Capital.

There is a variety of architecture in Dean Village from the robust warehouses and mill buildings, the red sandstone cottage-style buildings to the more modern tenements of English influence.

The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
