Heads of Ayr Farm Park

Attractions Croy Brae (Electric Brae). Travel south down the A719 between Dunure and Croy Bay and experience the world famous Electric Brae (or Croy Brae). Care must be taken, but you can stop your car on the hill, leave the brakes off, and very slowly your car will roll up the hill! Whilst there is a slope of 1 in 86 upwards from the bend at the Glen, the configuration of the land on either side of the road provides an optical illusion making it look as if the slope is going the other way. Therefore, a stationary car on the road with the brakes off will appear to move slowly uphill. The term 'Electric Brae' dates from a time when it was incorrectly thought to be a phenomenon caused by electric or magnetic attraction within the Brae. About 4 miles west of Maybole.
