including ambling along the River Leith path into town. So restful and quiet apart for the birdsong. Buildings along the river path so full of character.

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
