Kingswells is a suburb of Aberdeen, Scotland, situated west of the city centre, east of Westhill, north of Cults and south of Dyce.

Kingswells has existed as a village for centuries, but only beginning in the 1980s did it expand greatly as a result of the boom in the oil industry. Kingswells accommodates many facilities suited for everybody and is famous for its spacious family homes. It has a wide range of local amenities including a primary school, convenience store, a doctor's surgery, veterinary surgery, a Chinese takeaway, a pizza takeaway, a hairdresser, a cafe, a pharmacy, two nurseries, two community halls, a car garage and a restaurant inn. In the nearby mile or so there is also a business complex with a hotel, home to a Starbucks and a luxury gym. It doesn't include a secondary school however, there are school buses which run within the community providing efficient transport to nearby neighbouring secondary schools such as Westhill Academy.

There is a regular bus service running to and from the city, passing the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary run by Stagecoach and a well used Park and Ride scheme. Kingswells also has easy cross country access to Bridge of Don and Dyce, convenient for people working at the Airport and Industrial Estates.
