Arbuthnott (Scottish Gaelic: Obar Bhuadhnait) is a small village in northeast Scotland, 26 miles south of Aberdeen. It is located on the B967 east of Fordoun (on the A90) and north-west of Inverbervie (on the A92) in Aberdeenshire. The nearest train station is Stonehaven.
Arbuthnott House, the seat of the Viscount of Arbuthnott, is near the village.
Some of the nearest Bronze Age archaeological recoveries are situated somewhat to the north near Stonehaven at the Fetteresso and Spurryhillock sites. In the general vicinity of this portion of Aberdeenshire are situated Dunnottar Castle, Fiddes Castle, Fetteresso Castle and Muchalls Castle.
Arbuthnott contains many prominent community groups:
Arbuthnott Church  is part of Arbuthnott, Bervie and Kinneff Church. Christians can attend worship in the Arbuthnott building weekly, except on 5th Sundays of the month. The church building dates back to the 13th Century, and is one of the few pre-reformation churches still in weekly use. The manse is in nearby town Inverbervie and the minister is the Rev Dennis Rose.
Alongside the commercial enterprise of the local newspaper, The Mearns Leader, Arbuthnott has a Local Community Radio Station in Mearns FM. Broadcasting from nearby Stonehaven in the Townhall, Mearns FM helps to keep Arbuthnott up to date with local and charity events, as well as playing a wee bit of music. Staffed completely by volunteers, Mearns FM is run as a not for profit organisation, broadcasting under a Community Radio licence, with a remit to provide local focus news events and programming. Jointly funded by local adverts and local and national grants. Mearns FM has one of the largest listening areas of any Community Radio Station owing to the Mearns' distributed population, Mearns FM was set up to try to bring these distant communities together.
