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.

Far too many dogs.

We stayed in September. The site was a typical club site. 1 of the Male wardens was a little sharply spoken for no reason, ? Tired end of season. We did feel there needs to be more hard standing, and we where shocked just how many dogs where on site, some I most say with bad owners. Most mornings our neighbour would take his 3 large dogs out after they had been moaning to go for a long while. Only for them in desperation to deposit their droppings out side our awning. Yes the owner did pick up. But it wasn’t what we wanted while eating breakfast. If he had taken the poor things earlier as they where requesting he’d of made it to the dog walk. He wasn’t the only bad owner we spotted. Also the smell of dog pee on the waysides and pathways is awful. No we are not anti dog, just anti bad owners. I Truly believe it is time the club charged for dogs and put a limited to numbers per unit. Would you like to be camping on a pitch that had previously had 4-5 dogs on it?

Excellent peaceful site

What a wonderful and peaceful location, within 10 mins stroll of endless dog friendly beaches with golden sand and interesting rocks and pools, and a lovely view across the Firth of Forth. Perhaps this area of Scotland is a little overlooked as it wasn't that busy - even though we were there in half term week - but it shouldn't be! Lovely site staff and a good choice of pitches. Usual high standards of cleanliness as expected from a Club site, with good facilities. We walked to North Berwick one day; a smart town with lots of coffee shops, and the other day to Gullane, excellent paths either on the beach or across paths through the dunes. Our dogs loved it and we will definitely be back

First class

We have been camping for decades and bought a motor home for our retirement. I was impressed at the cleanliness, helpful and happy staff, most of the site is flat, it's near a beach, woodland and an easy walk to the pub. We've just come back from our 6th visit over the last 30 months or so and the site is as it was, as it is and a delight to use. The number of children and pets have never been a problem and our dogs go bonkers when we are there. First class and a triumph for the club. We will be back 2020!! Anne & Barry Moore (+ 2 springers1)

Great long weekend away

Been to Yellowcraigs quite a few times. Always lovely. Facilities are excellent and always spotless. Lots of kids having fun. Wardens always very helpful also. Great for the nearby beach and for a little further the Archerfield house and the associated walled garden are great for kids and adults too. We were lucky enough to get there for a food festival this time which was great.

Beautiful site, fantastic location

A lovely site with a fantastic location with a short walk to the beach. Very friendly, welcoming and helpful staff. Great walk along the beach to North Berwick. Didn't move the motorhome all weekend. Easy cycle routes from the van. Highly recommended site.
