The Electric Brae
The Electric Brae is located on the coastal road from Girvan to Ayr, just 1m south of Dunure in rural Scotland. Also sometimes known as Croy Brae, it is a well known scenic stretch of road where the configuration of the land gives the impression that a vehicle can freewheel uphill. The land on either side of the road creates an optical illusion so it looks as if the slope is going the other way. There is a past belief that an electric or magnetic forcefield was the cause of this bizarre phenomenon.
