Bucksburn is an area of the city of Aberdeen, Scotland, named after the stream that flows through it. Bucksburn was formerly a market village before being swallowed up by the spread of the city.

The area is bordered by countryside - in particular Kirkhill Forest and the land surrounding Brimmond Hill.

Bucksburn & District Pipe Band, formed in 1947, has represented Aberdeen internationally and were Champion of Champions in 1998 and 1999 at their grade.[2] The youth section won the Scottish, British, and World Champions titles in 2008.[3]
