We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue
Have just returned from a weekend in Bonnie Scotland. One of the notable highlights of the weekend was a visit to the 'Electric Brae', known locally as Croy Brae. Located on the A719 between Dunure and Knoweside, the brae runs for a quarter of a mile. Courtesy of an optical illusion the road appears to run downhill but if you stop and put the car into neutral it rolls backwards seemingly up-hill - wierd sensation. Having heard about it for years from Mary it was excellent to see it in the flesh and, in its simple way, it did not disappoint.
