Bud is a fishing village in Fræna Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county in western Norway. The village is located on the Romsdal peninsula along the Atlanterhavsveien road, west of the village of Hustad, north of the village of Tornes, and east of the Bjørnsund islands. Bud Church is located in the village.
The village was the administrative centre of the old Bud Municipality, which existed from 1838 until 1964 when it was merged into Fræna Municipality. The old municipality encompassed the northern part of the present-day Fræna Municipality.
At the death of King Frederick I in 1533, it was the site of the last independent Norwegian Privy Council, organized by Olav Engelbrektsson, Archbishop of Nidaros. The meeting led to a failed attempt to break away from the Kalmar Union and King Christian III, and claim Norway's independence by rejecting the Protestant Reformation. The council was the last of its kind in Norway for 270 years.
In 1964, Bud Municipality was dissolved when it was merged into Fræna Municipality.
