Thatched cottage, Luib, Skye

This thatched cottage is situated in the centre of the crofting township of Luib on the Isle of Skye. At the time of writing (2011) it is still inhabited but the cottage in the left background is now completely ruinous.

Luib lies on the shores of Loch Ainort on the east coast of the island. The name Luib is derived from the Gaelic word for a bend. Originally the township consisted of 24 thatched buildings with associated enclosures, field walls and head-dyke. Today, most of the thatched houses have been slated or are in a derelict condition. However, a couple have been restored as self-catering cottages.
