Pilton

Pilton is a residential district in northern region of Edinburgh City, Scotland. It is bordered by Granton to its north and east. The district was named after the old Barony of Piltoun, which was originally owned by Lord Rollock in 1610. In 1817, the district was split into two sections; the West Pilton and East Pilton. Today, the two sections of Pilton have major differences, with the eastern section having a more solid community and better infrastructure, housing and amenities, while the west is still in the process of regeneration.

  • Enjoy sports and activities like swimming, fitness classes, football and athletics at the Ainslie Park Leisure Centre, named after Sir Philip Ainslie, who acquired the Pilton estate in 1780.
  • Challenge locals to a game of tennis at the Lomond Park Tennis Club, the premier tennis club in the Pilton neighbourhood of Edinburgh, which features five artificial grass tennis courts complete with floodlights, a practice wall, a clubhouse and kitchen.
  • Walk over to the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburg, and explore its interesting attractions that include the Chinese Hillside, Woodland Gardens and Arboretum, the Glass Houses, and the Rock Garden.

The West and East Pilton sections are accessible through public transportation. There is a regular bus service run by the Lothian Bus Company that covers routes from Greendykes, the old town of Edinburgh all the way to Pilton. The nearest train station to the district is the Haymarket Railway Station. From this station, you need to walk 10 to 15 minutes to reach Pilton. As an alternative transport, you can rent a bicycle to the travel to residential district especially if you are coming from neighbouring suburbs. The city is very bicycle-friendly with several traffic-free cycle routes.
