Hi Michelle,
I am researching the Lovie family from Boyndie/Whitehills Banff. I would love to compare notes.

Hi everyone

Im a Watson from Whitehills and have compiled quite a bit of my family tree - there are Watsons, Ritchies, Lovies, Nicols and Wisemans.

I'd be happy to help with any questions about Whitehills and a good record collection online is Scotlands people . com - most whitehills records of births, marriages and deaths are there - it can get a little confusing though because all the common names (watson lovie findlay pirie) are all very old names squeezed into a very small community. e.g. my great great grandparents both had the middle name Lovie and the last name Watson before they got married.

There is also a good history here at the Statistical Accounts of Scotland:

(should work if you copy and paste i think)

Note that Whitehills is now in Aberdeenshire, it was Banff and Buchan and even further back was the Parish of Boyndie (which even earlier was called "Boidie".  There are still areas here refered to as Boyndie and InverBoyndie.

As far as graveyards the modern Boyndie graveyard is about half a mile towards Banff and the older Boyndie Kirkyard is very close by and unused (and un looked after) in an area now known to locals as Inverboyndie.

Whitehills has been a fishing village for over 200 years however it is no longer as boats got bigger and the newest harbour is now used as a marina for yatchs (has been for about 6-7 years if i remember properly).

As well as all this id be excited to find relatives further afield.
