For successor Pilot House (on the Middle Pier at Granton Harbour), see NT27NW 28.01.

For Entrance Basin, see NT27NE 57.47.

This building and associated structure were presumably used to support pilotage services before the late 1960s, when they were enclosed behind the New Entrance Lock (NT27NE 57.03).
