The Electric Brae
The Electric Brae is a short length of coastal road south of Ayr where, by an optical illusion, the road appears to be going downhill when its actually going uphill. Well I rode up and down it several times and I couldn't see it and you can tell uphill from downhill on a 250.
This stone explains things
Maybe the cyclists get it
There are good views from the top (or bottom?) of the hill. Above is Ailsa Craig, an island 10 miles offshore, formed by a volcanic plug.
