Welcome to Dean Village, Edinburgh

The restoration of Saint Bernard’s Well has been completed, but donations to the restoration would still be appreciated. ┬áPlease consider donating to Edinburgh World Heritage (details on linked page) in order to support this work!

Dean Village is situated to the west of Edinburgh city centre and nestles alongside the Water of Leith; a tranquil haven from the bustle of the city, yet only a ten minute walk from Princes Street.
The Dean Village has a character all its own, and is proud of its sense of community. The villagers have united to form the Dean Village Association, dedicated to the physical and social conservation of this part of Edinburgh.
This web site has been developed by volunteers who are members of the Dean Village Association with new information being added on an ongoing basis. The aim of the web site is to provide information for those with an interest in Dean Village, to encourage them to take an active part in conserving this beautiful corner of Edinburgh and in doing so to provide an opportunity for social interaction so often lacking in a city.
