Breivig[1] (Scottish Gaelic: Brèibhig) is a village on Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Breivig is within the parish of Stornoway.[1]

According to Magne Oftedal's 'The Village Names of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides' (Oslo, 1954), the name Brèibhig is derived from the Old Norse Breiðvík ('broad bay').
