The Electric Brae in Ayrshire, Scotland…

The Electric Brae I remember being taken over The Electric Brae in Ayrshire, Scotland in 1970. It’s a gravity hill where automobiles appear to be drawn uphill whilst travelling down in some strange phenomenon!

Known locally as Croy Brae, the road appears to run uphill, and yet, with your auto engine off, the brake off, and out of gear, your auto will move of its own free will… Up the hill!

This experience I felt back in 1970 was truly uncanny and left me with an ever-lasting memory of The Electric Brae.
