Cuminestown (pron. kʌm'ɪnstʌn) is a village in the Formartine area of Aberdeenshire, about 6 miles (10 kilometres) east of Turriff. The village is the main centre of the parish of Monquhitter, which was split from Turriff in 1649 when what was then a rural church was built on land owned by the Cumine family. The village itself was originally built in the 1750s to a design by Sir Archibald Grant of Monymusk, who was a friend of Joseph Cumine. Grant's plan for the village followed closely the design used for firstly New Keith, and secondly Archiestown. The construction of the village was followed soon afterwards by the adjacent hamlet of Garmond.
In 2011, Cuminestown had an estimated population of 440.
