Why stay here ...

Yellowcraig Club Campsite 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 Campsite, 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.

Beautifully Maintained Site in Great Location

Yellowcraig Club Campsite
Second visit to Yellowcraig and again very impressed by the high standard maintained by the site staff here. Although it is a busy site you wouldn't know it by the cleanliness and peace you will find here. Only a short walk to the beach and a longer walk to North Berwick (or a short drive). Plenty to see and do around here and we can't wait to return.

Lobster and Chips!

Yellowcraig Club Campsite
Full site over the weekend when we visited, the facilities were clean and well looked after, pitches reasonably spaced. Great for beach waliking, watching the sea scapes and the stormy weather come and go. Its 3 miles to North Berwick where we made the most of a rewarding visit to the Lobster Shack in the harbour and a pint in the Auld Hoose before returning along the John Muir way.

Peace and tranquility

Yellowcraig Club Campsite
Just returned from another fabulous visit to this site. Wardens where friendly and took great care of the site. Their where 2 of us and our 2 furry family. Yes there where lots of dogs but I have to say It didn't impact our stay in anyway. All who we met where friendly and quiet (including our own). Great place for lots of walks, being either beach, field or woods. A nice walk to the pub at Dirleton has to be done for food and perhaps a little thirst quencher! And very dog friendly! All in all a super stay. And even better the sun came out to play!

Overrun by Dogs - It's Barking MAD!

Yellowcraig Club Campsite
Been coming here for 30 years - could be my favourite CAMC site BUT and it's a BIG BUT - so so many dogs on almost very pitch - the trend is not one or two dogs but multiple dogs per owner - and whilst one or two owners have impeccably behaved dogs (ie do not bark) sadly most dog owners appear completely oblivious to the often incessant barking and high pitched nervous yapping from their beloved " can do no wrong" pets! It can start at 7am and can be heard until almost midnight - so much for peace and quiet! Please dog owners keep your dogs quiet and under control! I am not anti dog (owned dogs for 25 years) but when you have a site full and about 75% of pitches with multiple dogs it's like a Kennel Club convention with in excess of 100 dogs on this lovely site More consideration dog owners please. Finally the wardens here do a great job but they are dog owners too so don't expect much sympathy from them on this subject!
