West Pilton is a residential area of Edinburgh north of Ferry Road, east of Muirhouse, and immediately west of East Pilton and then Granton.

Most of West Pilton was formerly social housing constructed by the council between the 1930s-1950s (with a hiatus during the Second World War) but now these properties are largely privately owned. The housing mostly takes the form of maisonettes and three storey blocks of flats. In addition, new housing developments have been built by the private sector and the area is currently undergoing revitalisation. There are local shops and community services.
