East Pilton is a mostly council, housing scheme in the north of Edinburgh, Scotland. It is north of Ferry Road, west of Granton and immediately east of West Pilton and Muirhouse. East Pilton, like West Pilton, is generally considered to be part of the neighbouring area of Granton.

Built as council housing in the 1930s, designed by Ebenezer James MacRae to help in the clearance of slum properties from the city centre, the estate comprises mostly two- and three-storey blocks of flats. It includes some shops and other facilities which also serve the mostly modern neighbouring estate of West Pilton, which has fewer facilities.
