Brue 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. Brue is situated on a minor road which joins to the A858, and is within the parish of Barvas.

The name Brue is an anglicised form of the Scottish GaelicBrù which in turn comes from an Old Norse word which is believed to have meant bridge; this reflects the centuries of Norsemen occupation and settlement in the Outer Hebrides.

The coastline at Brue is the site of various cairns, including a prehistoric one, and is also near to the site of a blackhouse.

It was likely that Dorrek, when attacked, might loose his brues over the desert with a few men guiding them to raid the vulnerable Hill City.

There was no way for Dorrek's men and brues to get out of the valley without passing through one of these two narrow gorges, both of which Grenfell's projectors now dominated.

A hundred brues went past, lashed by their drivers, slithering off toward a section of the barrage.
