Well Court (Dean Village)

Well Court

The walk I took in Edinburgh along the Water Of Leith a few weeks ago also revealed to me Well Court, which has recently been restored. (The above picture originates from the site in the link.)

The buildings here were a delight to come across. So quaint and Olde Worlde; obviously recently refurbished yet with a sympathetic touch.

I took a photo of this interesting cluster and juxtaposition of roofs and windows. I love the way the gutter goes across the window towards the top left of the picture

Part Of Well Court

Well Court is by the Water Of Leith, over the water from Dean Village. Here’s my photo of the clocktower.

The buildings are clustered round a square entered through an archway. One corner had this mediæval style stairwell open to the elements. Nice ironwork on the balconies.

One of Edinburgh’s relatively hidden pleasures.
