Whitehills is a traditional fishing village, located two miles west of Banff and four miles east of Portsoy on the Banffshire coast of northeast Scotland. The District surrounding Whitehills is a mix of farmland and scattered hamlets, including Boyndie, Inverboyndie. Due to its sheltered location on a picturesque bay under Knock Head the historical coastal village of Whitehills provided an ideal base for a prosperous fishing industry from as early as the 1700s. A downturn in the fishing industry means that these days the harbour, which is now an award-winning marina, plays host to yachts and pleasure craft as opposed to the yawls and scaffies of days gone by.

The objects and function of the Whitehills and District Community Council is to ascertain, co-ordinate and express to statutory and public authories and bodies the views of the community which it represents in relation to matters for which those authorities and/or bodies are responsible.

Whitehills & District Community Council administrates the WDCC Boyndie Windfarm Community Fund. The annual income for this fund originates from Falck Renewables and results from the electricity generating capacity of Boyndie Windfarm.
