The Luib

Kerbed Cairn


The Luib is a place with a very good atmosphere and has a beautiful location. One kerb defiantly remains whilst the central mound has been hollowed. The remaining stones forming an inner circle of types. It stands at almost 6 meters wide and 0.4 meters tall.

From the A944 take the A939 east towards Corgarff and the Lecht (ski centre). These roads are very famous as they are normally the first to be blocked in winter time. Go past the primary school then stop and were two tracks head in a northerly direction. (The Luib is the farm down the road.) Following the directions given to me, I found the gate, saw the telegraph pole and aligned it to the pylon further up. In this way the cairn can be found in the middle.
