Whitland (Welsh: Hendy-gwyn; literal transalation: 'Old White House', or sometimes Hendy-gwyn ar Daf; 'Old white house on the river Taf') is a small town in Carmarthenshire, west Wales, lying on the River Taf. Traditionally Whitland is seen as the site of an assembly of lawyers and churchmen, sometimes described as the first Welsh parliament. It was called in 930 by Hywel of Deheubarth in order to codify the native Welsh laws.

The town is also home to a secondary school (Ysgol Dyffryn Taf), a museum, and a wide variety of sporting grounds. Its main industry was a dairy, but it was closed in 1994.
