Dean Gardens is one of the private parks in Edinburgh, set aside for use by people in nearby streets who do not have their own gardens. Today I was able to visit it with one of my birdwatching groups, as a member of the group is also a member of Dean Gardens! It's a lovely place, covering seven acres of the banks of the Water of Leith and offering a number of pretty paths, stunning views and lovely autumn colours.
