Why stay here ...

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.

Autumn in Scotland

This is our second visit to this site this year and didn't disappoint.  We were going to Edinburgh on 30th October to help with a Kennel Club competition and decided to combine this with a late holiday at Yellowcraig.  Unfortunately due to a personal problem we had to adjust our day of arrival, but this was accommodated without any hassle and we had a great 8 nights.  The site is next to the beach, woods and some fabulous walks.  Its spotless and very well kept and the wardens are so helpful.  We'll be back soon.

One of the very best !

Stayed here last week for 4 nights. Brilliant for walking the dogs, 5 mins to the lovely beach and woodland walks. The wardens were very friendly and helpful and what can I say about the facilities? 'Perfect' sums it up I think, large showers & toilets which were spotless. Highly recommend a visit to this gem of a site :)

Great Site

Great site. Superb walks, great location, lots of things to keep families entertained, museums, castles, retail outlets, lots of dog friendly eateries serving some fantastic local produce. Only 5 mins down to the beautiful beach with stunning views, roaming deer fantastic wildlife. Staff were helpful and the site would benefit from more hard-standings although this does not take away from the pluses of enjoying a holiday staying at this great site.
