A dormitory village of Buchan in Aberdeenshire, Mintlaw lies in the valley of the South Ugie Water, 8 miles (13 km) west of Peterhead. It was laid out at a road junction in 1810 by James Ferguson of Pitfour and further expanded after the arrival of the railway in 1861. The settlement expanded rapidly as a commuter settlement in the 1970s in association with North Sea oil-related industries. In addition to Mintlaw Academy which dates from the late 1980s, there is a village swimming pool.
