This article is about Luib Bridge across the River DOn on the A939.
For Luib Bridge on the A890 south of Achnasheen, see Luib Bridge (Ledgowan)

The Luib Bridge carries the A939 across the River Don between Corgarff village and Corgarff Castle. It is a two arch bridge, the eastern arch being smaller and perhaps designed as a flood arch. However, the river now flows through both arches, albeit only a small channel under the smaller arch, with the pier stood on a grassy island in the channel. The bridge was built in 1830 by a local land owner, and carries a single track roadway albeit with no traffic controls on this quiet road. Black and white painted barriers line the approaches on both sides of the bridge.
