New Byth is a small inland planned village in the Banff and Buchan committee area of Aberdeenshire, Scotland that lies a few miles northeast of Cuminestown. It was founded in 1764 by the then Laird of Byth, James Urquhart.

The village has few facilities, the former Post Office, village pub and primary school all having closed since 2000. There are two former church buildings, the larger previously affiliated to the Church of Scotland and now derelict, the smaller associated with the United Free Church of Scotland until 1929 and still administered by the Church of Scotland though it is no longer used for church activities, instead being hired out as a general community hall. The village had an active branch of the Scottish Women's Rural Institute until 2011, when it merged with the Monquhitter branch.

The village hosts an annual steam and vintage rally, usually on the Sunday closest to 1 July.
