Pilton is a residential area of north Edinburgh, Scotland. It is to the north of Ferry Road, west of Granton and immediately east of Muirhouse. Pilton consists of two, mostly council, housing schemes - West Pilton and East Pilton. These schemes are regarded as two of the most deprived schemes in Edinburgh and suffer from high crime rates and anti-social behaviour especially young joyriders stealing powerful motorbikes and cars, driving them recklessly round the scheme. Pilton is generally considered to be part of the larger neighbouring area of Granton.
