Yellowcraig Caravan Club Site is an attractive location with several pitching areas separated by grass banking, shrubs and roses - a splendid choice for family holidays with acres of flat golden sands and rock pools nearby. Nature lovers visiting this caravan site will appreciate the birds and wildlife that are found in abundance amongst the sweeping dunes. The Millennium Commission funded Scottish Seabird Centre at North Berwick uses remote controlled cameras to monitor the wellbeing of Scotland's seabirds and offers a spectacular Gannet Experience sound and light show.

Located within easy reach from Yellowcraig Caravan Club Site, the promontory harbour affords exceptional views of the Bass Rock and other islands. Nearby East Lothian combines convenient access to 'Auld Reekie' with its many charming villages of pantiled cottages. The site boasts a coastline of lovely sandy bays and rocky headlands to feast the eyes on. The site also provides access to the John Muir Way, a coast to coast long distance walking path that stretches right across Scotland. There are also loads of sporting activities available in the area, including water-skiing, sailing, windsurfing and no less than nineteen golf courses. The nearby National Museum of Flight is a fun and informative day out for all ages. The museum also hosts air shows and other attractions such as the Wartime Experience and the chance to enjoy a helicopter flight. Award-winning, family run The Castle Inn is just a short walk from the site and offers a bar & bistro, restaurant, plus golf and other attractions.

Ideal beach location

5 out of 5

This is our second visit to Yellowcraig. The beach is a short walk away and the facilities are brilliant, good clean hot powerful showers and nice friendly staff. The site does get really busy and during our stay was full. We were in a quiet cul de sac location so was nice and quiet but on looking for a pitch we did see large groups of children a families socialising which I would imagine would be noisy if you were sited in these areas. Edinburg tattoo is brilliant and a must North Bewick about 3 miles away nice little town and about 1 mile to the right from ware road  is a pub which serves great food and is great value but you will need to book in busy periods. Overall great stay and can recommend this site. 

Relaxing

5 out of 5

First trip to this site, pleasant staff upon arrival and found site to be very peaceful and quiet with a good layout. Short walk to clean sandy beach, facilities were kept clean and tidy. Very limited phone signal and poor tv reception but that made it a more relaxing stay, and will definitely be back!

One of the best coastal Club sites.

5 out of 5

This is a deceptively large caravan site because the separate zones are like secluded loops off a main access road within the site. From our pitch (85) we could only see 8 or 9 caravans/units even though the site was absolutely full, being the last week of Scottish school holidays! There was, however, very obvious presence of many children on bikes and scooters playing hide and seek around the site via the roads and paths, and too many racing much too fast on site roads (5mph???) But this site has the major advantage of its location - close proximity to the beautiful extended beach just 5 minutes from the caravan door, superb woodland walks with a children's play area, an easy walk to Dirleton  village with at least two good eating places, and North Berwick 2 to 3 miles away for supermarkets, shopping and of course the best Fish and Chips Shop for miles!  But at weekends N-B is very very busy!  Being on the east coast the site is usually always fresh and breezy and can be very windy quite often so peg your awning down well! Although there are lots of trees and shrubbery around the site, giving good separation and privacy, you would be very unlucky not to get line-of-site for your satellite dish (but terrestrial broadcast TV is quite well received here). Our dogs really enjoyed the variety of walks available daily and enjoyed the generous space for each pitch on site too. They regretted not being allowed to chase the thousands of rabbits cheekily munching grass all day around the site!  Everyone seemed to be having a good time: the old and the young, the visitors and the wardens, and the weather was actually fantastic that week which may have had something to do with it. The whole site was spotlessly clean and tidy and the facilities block was well kept - what more could one want? Maybe a few more days here?
