Why stay here ...

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.

Fantastic site one of the best

This is definitely one of our favourite sites. Just got back from a wonderful week 13th -20th Sept 2020. Fantastic weather hot and sunny. Amazing staff who are working so hard in these awful virus times. Spotlessly clean and we felt very safe and happy during our week. Thank you to everyone for making our stay so perfect. We will definitely be back it's such a beautiful place.

Lovely Break - Great Wardens

Wardens doing a great job in difficult circumstances with COVID, etc. The wardens had a very unpleasant job to sort whilst we were there - a broken sewer - but they just got on with it and fixed it. Excellent spirit among the wardens when dealing with this horrible task. We like this site because of its location and the dog-walking and easy access to the dog-friendly beach. Despite some very unseasonal wild weather, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay again and shall return. Big 'up' for the wardens!! Thank-you.

Fantastic Site

The close proximity to the beach, sand dunes, woodland and the John Muir Way make this site idyllic. Our dogs love it and we will certainly return. What makes the site so nice is that it is divided into little enclaves with grassy banks in between so you never feel that you are on a big site. Facilities are excellent being well maintained and very clean, the staff were very friendly and helpful and there is lots to do in the local area. So many beautiful beaches particularly Bellhaven Sands. Dunbar is well worth a visit and we had a lovely meal at the garden centre there. North Berwick Fry has the best fish and chips by far. Lovely relaxing holiday.

Tranquil and relaxing site.

Not our first visit to this site and will not be our last. It is set in a nice peaceful area and is only a short stroll to the beach with excellent views (when the weather allows) and scope for some excellent walks. It is some years since we owned a dog but if dogs could choose I would imagine this would be one of their favourite sites. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and it is such a pity that they have to tolerate a small minority of campers who seem to believe that they are exempt from all the site rules as well as the COVID rules. The facilities on the site are up to the usual high club standard and our only complaint is the Wi-Fi reception which is very poor and just relies on a hotspot.

Recent 2020 visit to Yellowcraigs

I am just back from 10days in Yellowcraigs. 1st time out since lockdown, I'll admit to bring apprehensive, however mostly what I saw was good. Check in was contacted by phone, when we first arrived they only had 3 wristbands for female showers/toilets so often lengthy queues while you waited for someone coming out of shower even if you only needed the toilet, after day 4or 5 though 3 extra bands were out out for use of people only needing toilet (different colour) and this helped tremendously! For the entire stay, there was only 1out if 4 sinks in use at dish washing point. As the sinks were in a row. Several of us couldn't work out why the sink at the end couldn't be opened and the two in the middle blocked off and there would still be more than adequate social distancing. I also felt that whiles t hand sanitizer were available in many places, there were none at the water/bin points which I felt was an obvious place to put them, the wardens agreed but had been told it wasn't necessary due to extra sanitation of this area however it is still a high touch area and at my work (NHS), we have to sanitize all equipment used by patient ( non covid), including anything they've touched so don't get this one. We had noisy neighbours playing guitars at 23.30 but this was addressed on complaining to the wardens. Over all I felt fairly safe on site and would return, been 5 times now, yes it was different but still a great site.
