After our first savoury Full Scottish Breakfast, Derek and I set off to our next lodging, Grosvenor Gardens Hotel (read about our hotel stay here). From there, we walked north to Dean Village, a picturesque and historic neighbourhood in Edinburgh.

We thoroughly enjoyed exploring this area, as it’s so quiet and peaceful. It’s amazing how a place that once was a thriving grain-milling area on the Water of Leith is now just artistic and serene.
