PHOTO WALK – Water of Leith (Roseburn to Dean Village)

This short stretch of the Water of Leith is one of my favourite walks in Edinburgh.

Starting at Roseburn, near Murrayfield, the path leads you past old mills, roaring weirs and under towering bridges.

This section ends at the historic Dean Village: here you can carry on to Stockbridge and beyond, or leave the waterside path and find yourself in the buzz of the West End.

These photographs were from an evening stroll in the spring, when the plants and trees were beginning to burst into new life; and some of the waterside wildlife was going about its business in the golden light.
