Westhill and Elrick Community website

Welcome to the Westhill and Elrick Community website.

This site has been established by Westhill & Elrick Community Council (W&ECC) to bring together and promote the diverse range of community groups active in the area. It is hoped that as the website progresses more and more local groups will join us to promote what they do in the local community and that this site will be a one-stop shop to find out what's going on in Westhill & Elrick.


HILL OF KEIR road, (U97C), will be partially closed from the 23rd March for 2 weeks - the Westhill and Elrick Community Council learned this week.

The section of road which faces closure is from where Hill of Keir road meets Old Skene Road to the access road to Cairnfield, Skene. As such, access to properties along this stretch should be largely unhindered, however a small proliferation of construction vehicles should be expected. This section is to close due to the installation of a surface water sewer and a new junction with Old Skene Road. 


A NEW EXHIBITION opened today at His Majesty's Theatre, Aberdeen which showcases the works of Westhill resident, Jamie Cameron.

Cameron specialises in architectural illustrations and his works encapsulate some of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire's most beautiful buildings. From Inverurie Town Hall to Aberdeen Grammar School to The Prudential Building, Aberdeen: Cameron's illustrations bring to life the architectural majesty of Aberdeen's often forgotten treasures.

SIX OF TEN hydrogen fuel cell buses in Aberdeen's hydrogen bus fleet will operate on the X17 (Stagecoach) route from Aberdeen (Union Square) to Elrick it was announced this week. This means that, since operations have commenced, Westhill is a global pioneer of the new and exciting technology.

Members of the public may have seen the vehicles out and about during their trials or in fee-paying service since their introduction this week.

LUNGING THEIR WAY on to the scene, the boys and girls of Bagheera Cub Scout Pack were, on Friday night, learning how to fence as part of their Fitness Challenge Badge.

A big thanks to the people who enquired about being part of this and the answer is YES, YES, YES.

This is a community art project, open to all, simply colouring and decorating egg shapes, then being laminated, to hang around the shopping arcade for Easter weekend.
