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.
