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.

Lovely Site

Yellowcraig Caravan Club Site
We stayed at this site on our way home from the Highlands and would definitely be back. Its a large site but with lots of small areas with grass and hardstanding pitches, and the site was very well cared for. It is a just a few minutes walk from the beach with amazing walks and there is also a large wooded area with lots of paths so brilliant for dog walks. Unfortunately it rained the whole day we were there so we didn't manage to explore as much as we would have liked, but did manage a meal at the local pub, which we would recommend and the bar area is dog friendly. We look forward to returning the the future.

East coast favourite

Yellowcraig Caravan Club Site
Essentially a quiet, peaceful site with a range of pitching options set close to lovely coastal scenery. The sandy beach with offshore islands is within a few minutes walk. Do explore beyond the immediate coastal strip by taking walks/bike to nearby villages where golf and bird watching are popular. Countless food options in the villages of North Berwick or Gullane to name only two. We are still finding new places of interest even though we know the area well. There is much to see and do. The site is spacious, level and fairly sheltered. The wardens are welcoming, helpful and busy about the site keeping it neat and tidy. On arrival the entrance area was a bit congested because, like ourselves, many units arrived too early having failed to note the hour delay to opening. It is not easy for members to break the habit of noon opening which many members prefer as witnessed at many sites this year. The Wardens met it all with good grace. Be aware that Club wifi is very poor and the phone signal is not great.

Last Minute Booking

Yellowcraig Caravan Club Site
Seventh and final 😥😥, stop on our five week tour of the Highlands, needed a stop off to break our long journey to Lancashire. Had availability for a last minute booking read reviews, so booked it. All reviews were spot on, very nice spacious site, different areas to pitch. Haven’t used facilities but sure they live up to CAMC standards, very friendly welcome apart from that not had to contact wardens but they are out and about. Had a lovely lunch at The Castle Inn, in lovely village of Dirleon , ruined castle there but only opened at weekend. Tesco 4 miles away. The site is quite a way out but the absolute selling point is the fantastic miles of beach and dunes,just minutes away, great for dogs and sure any kids would love the rock pools. The site is also on the John Muir way. Short stay this time but will definitely visit this site/area again. The site photo doesn’t really do it justice! We did manage EE phone signal most of the time and also 4g, but we were pitched near Reception, so maybe that helped?

Ideal for the beach

Yellowcraig Caravan Club Site
The first time we have been to yellowcraig to stay,the staff were excellent,we had a dog with us and he loved the beach for running around.A great idea to have a little shower area for washing the sea and sand off our four legged friend.The only thing that we couldn’t get a mobile signal(3)we managed to get a Mobile data signal just at the side of the car. Got a great tv signal though.
