Fantastic location, wonderful site

Yellowcraig Club Campsite
We find ourselves back at this site time and again. The location is truly stunning and I dont think we would ever tire of it. Toilet block is adequate and always clean if not somewhat old. What is frustrating though is the price members are asked to pay. This cannot be anything other than daylight robbery! No idea how anyone at the club can possibly think this is in any way even coming close to reasonable.

Lack of investment

Yellowcraig Club Campsite
Been to this site for years, and every year comes and goes, the toilet/shower facilities look more shabby and tired, yet the cost to go to this particular site grows higher, the club is well aware the site's location is key for returning members but there is a limit. There is no value for money. Its the best location for a club site with lots to see and places to visit etc. Its very disappointing the cost is over shadowing booking again to this location.

Our favourite site with the nicest beaches.

Yellowcraig Club Campsite
We probably visit Yellowcraig Site more than any other club site, year on year, There is just so much to do nearby, beautiful beaches, amazing walks on the John Muir Way. Super cool cafe's perched on cliff tops ( Drift ) to Historic Castles. Close by there are Aviation and Motoring Museums and walled Gardens for the plant lovers amongst you. Yellow craig is Special, and the teams that run the site are amazingly friendly and accommodating.
