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.

Wonderful Yellowcraig

This is absolutely one of the nicest sites. The Site Wardens are helpful, smiley and provide lots of information when arriving. The facilities are clean and seem to be working well with the COVID restrictions, we didn't have to wait the times we went. The dog walk is great on site but then you have the amazing Yellowcraig Beach which is right near the site and is dog friendly. There is a good walk to North Berwick where you can sit on the front and watch the activities in the harbour. Another plus is the easy access to the A1 for travelling. Definitely will be returning to this site again.

Best club site I've been on for quite a while

Is it a carpark? No. Plenty of small enclaves. Are there grass pitches if required? Yes and plenty of Hardstanding ones as well. Seasonal Pitches available? Yes there are. Mid Week Discount? Yes Dog walking facilities? The club have one next to the reception area but you have some fantastic beaches and dunes to wander over to your hearts content. Peace and Quiet? Heard noisier Cemeteries. Wonderful Scenery? See answer in dog walking Wifi? We use our own and found the signal to be fine but plenty of people who use the club wifi were complaining that the signal was only good by the information hut. So, a negative. All in all a smashing site to spend a weeks break. We don't have children or dogs but both seemed to find plenty of enjoyment on and off the site. The wardens were pleasant and the booking in procedure easy peasy. Don't know about the sanitary blocks as we used our own but couldn't see why they couldn't have opened 2 washing up sinks, one at either end (of 4) and still maintain social distancing. Also agree with a previous reviewers about hand sanitisers should be supplied at water points. It wouldn't have cost a great deal in the grand scheme of things. Would stay again, and we are people who do not use a lot of club sites.

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.
