Why stay here ...

Yellowcraig 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 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.

Superb

Last minute booking on our way back from the NC500 but what a find. If ever we're in the area again would not hesitate to use. Can't speak for family suitability but everything else is top notch from friendliness of staff through location, cleanliness of facilities, ambience & that superb walk through to the dog friendly beach.

Fantastic location and a great site

Some 3 miles outside of North Berwick. A fabulous walk along the John Muir way (or the beach, tide dependent) into the interesting town of North Berwick. Set off in the opposite direction on the John Muir way and you will reach the very lovely village of Dirleton with its beautiful church and also castle. We have a dog and I would recommend that you walk towards the beach and take the John Muir way to Dirleton from there. You can turn right out of the campsite and walk along the road (with pavement) and pick up another branch of the John Muir way (turn right) to Dirleton. You will also find the Castle Inn pub (dog friendly) in Dirleton. A good pub for food and drink) Walk into the village and turn right along the John Muir way for about a mile and you will get to the Archfield Walled Garden. Beautiful shop and tearoom. Beautiful walks and gardens. Mostly dog friendly . The site is equally brilliant with well laid out and generous pitches. The staff are friendly and helpful. The coastline is very pleasant and if you like large houses it's worth a look. Wow there are some............ Loved it here and will visit again. Great location. Great for dog owners and more dog poo bins on the John Muir way than I have ever seen elsewhere. No excuses dog owners!!!!!! Thank you

Lovely quiet site

Lovely quiet site, no problem with noisy children or bikes, but we were there midweek in September. Site and facilities clean and tidy, plenty of hot water in the showers. A short walk to the beach. A short ride into North Berwick for shops and the train into Edinburgh (30 minute train ride). Some of the pitches on offer were quite small for a caravan, and there wasn’t a great deal of choice of pitches due to quite a lot of pitches being seasonal. Would recommend this site.

Happy Days

We use this site fairly regularly for long weekends. Staff are great and we really like the facilities. I have no issues with the toilets/showers, always clean with plenty of (good pressure) hot water. Not sure what could or should be changed to the layout of the block - certainly fine for us, as are all the facilities. We have a motorhome so unfair to comment on inadequate water pressure but heh, you are on a break, couple of minutes longer shouldn't be an issue. We don't have children but the youngsters on their bikes don't bother us either. We will happily continue to use the site which has quick access to a super beach, woodland walks, children's adventure park etc.
