    I read about the”Electric Brae” in Ayrshire before visiting it on two different occasions. For me it was one of the most spectacularly unimpressive optical illusions I have seen. There was, for me, no impression that the road was sloping the wrong way. Try viewing this video clip with the sound off and you will see what I mean.
