Какво ще правите

We will meet at the bottom of the Royal Mile where we will hear about modern and ancient history. We then will start our way up the Canongate, where, at our own pace, we will discover some hidden gems.. even some real Outlander locations. We will keep going up followed by stories about Corsairs and feisty preachers. We will enter the High Street and meet with history again in the surroundings of St Giles to continue with a glance at The Old Town’s life in the 18th century. If we all behave, we may search for a ghost on our way to Edinburgh Castle, where, at the esplanade, we will end enjoying some stories about witchcraft or maybe some tale of biblical proportions...
This tour will take you to the places you must know in the Royal Mile, but also to many off the beaten track ones. Places you would surely miss otherwise.
With loads of history and even more tales, you won’t be disappointed and you will end feeling you’re part of the story yourself...
So, put your best walking shoes on and let me take you to the past!
Other things to note
This is a full on tour walking upwards The Royal Mile. Fear not... we will go in a nice slow steady pace. I would recommend a good pair of shoes anyway. If you fancy just the bottom of The Royal Mile, check my Enigmatic Canongate Burgh Tour .

I’m Paulo, but everybody calls me Paul. I have over 20 years of experience in high class hospitality. When I moved to Scotland from Spain I fell in love with the country and it’s history, so a few years back I started studying Scottish history and became a tour guide here in Edinburgh. I’m also known as “The Kilted Spaniard”, and that became my brand.
I’m extremely enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge and fire. My main goal is providing a bespoke experience and creating a wonderful memory for all of my guests.
I’m a great storyteller and I will make my guests feel my passion for Edinburgh. I will show you the hidden gems and tell you facts that you won’t find in the books straight away.

Къде ще бъдете

I’ll take you on a stroll from the bottom of the Royal Mile all the way up to the Castle, where we will have a fun and full on journey through Edinburgh’s Old Town history. Not only that, we will also step off the main artery and discover stories of love, betrayal, murder and, why not, maybe the occasional ghost.

Paul has absolutely over delivered during our tour of the Royal Mile, the experience has been personalised to our taste with tons of tales and information. One of the best tours in a while, thank you Paul!

In order to make the most of our time in Edinburgh, a city that we could spend weeks in, I booked Paul, the Kilted Spaniard. He gave us a 3 hour tour of the Royal Mile that will not soon be forgotten. Starting at the bottom at Holyrood Palace, Paul filled our time with SO MUCH historic details; lots of secrets and hidden places no other tour will show you; as well as, a few custom treats - Outlander and Harry Potter sights. OHHHH AND PIRATES! Arrgh! #ifyouknowyouknow Paul will forever have a special place in our hearts, not just because he is a "fine specimen of a man and a Scot!" 😉 (I couldn't resist🤣), but because the pride and dedication that he puts into the time he spends with you. You will make a friend for life.

Paul is a superb historians and storyteller, his pirate story is worth the price of the tour alone and his in depth knowledge of canongate and the royal mile are first rate I highly recommend The Kilted Spaniard walking tours

If you want to have a laugh or two and enjoy a part of the town that is less explored, hidden nooks full of history alongside someone who is passionate about the city and his job ; this tour is for you ! Thank you Paul for a lovely afternoon. My daughter Lisa and I enjoyed thoroughly ! See you soon!

Well what a wonderful afternoon spent with the kilted Spaniard. Paul’s stories made for a magical trip up the Royal Mile for all of us. When we booked a private tour I explained that we had a wide age range and Paul made sure everyone felt included from our nine year old Darcey upward he even put together a treasure hunt for the children with a special prize for those who completed it. During the tour while telling his stories Paul asked Darcey to join in the storytelling by pulling a baffled face and she is still doing it now! Paul’s storytelling and love for his new homeland Scotland are infectious and as well as being royally entertained you learn so much. There were so many great stories but for me the really special part of this tour were the little detours off the main walk that showed you parts of the city you would never have found on your own or imagined existed. I have often walked up the Royal Mile but having been on Paul’s tour I feel I understand what it must have been like to live there in years gone by and the gruesome history of some the buildings. Paul is a wonderful host for the tour he is enthusiastic and patient and most of all he clearly loves telling his stories. If you are thinking of booking with Paul make sure you walk Cannongate too as it has a fascinating history. Finally never look up if you hear someone shout “Gardyloo”

Paul was absolutely brilliant, from the minute we met him he went above and beyond to make our experience the best. His knowledge and storytelling put you right in the middle of the experience. Many, many reminders of Scottish history, explained and pieced together that had you just been sauntering down the mile you would just miss. The tour ensured a connection with Edinburgh which will remain in my heart forever! Thank you Paul.
