Electric Brae We woke up more snow on the ground again we decided to still go out it was good that the griters where out doing the road making it safe to drive on even though there was lots of snow all over the ground. We drove to The Electric Brae is located on the coastal road from Girvan to Ayr, just 1m south of Dunure. 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. How does it work? Well 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 and some even believed that poltergeists were at work !!! It was so much fun we went back and forth a few times and stopped the car and saw it roll up hill So much fun.
