The Luing Breed (pronounced "Ling") was developed by the Cadzow brothers on the Island of Luing which is situated off the West Coast of Scotland. There are now herds of Luing throughout Great Britain and Ireland, Europe, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and South America.

Full credit most be given to the two great beef breeds which were the foundation of the Luing - the Beef Shorthorn and the Highlander of the 1940's. No two British breeds are more complementary to each other, with both of them having contributed something of great value to the Luing. Among these qualities are the ruggedness and hardiness gained from the Highlander and the fleshing qualities from the Shorthorn.
