    Can anyone tell me if Luib is a farm or anything else about this word?

    According to the web-site http://www.smo.uhi.ac.uk’s Gaelic – English Dictionary

    luib = (nf. g.+e; pl.+ean,) fold, corner, angular turning as of a stream, creek
    makes sense?!

    Slainte

    There is a hotel in Glen Dochart (West of Killin) called Luib and as far as i know it means “the bend”. Presumably it refers to a bend in the river or Glen.
