English: Brue (Brù) is a village on the Isle of Lewis in the West Side district, in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. It is a crofting township and it is composed of two areas: Am Baile Staigh, which is nearer the coast, and Pàirc Bhrù, which runs towards the moor. In total it covers a road distance of 2.5 km. The name Brue is an anglicised form of the Scottish Gaelic Brù which in turn comes from an Old Norse word which is believed to have meant old bridge; this reflects the centuries of Viking occupation and settlement in the Outer Hebrides.
