We spent a week at the Yellowcraig loft with another couple on a golf vacation. The loft was in a perfect location with easy access to many of the best courses we have played. The loft was very comfortable for two couples and was very well appointed. Heather and Eric were very accommodating and provided many suggestions for restaurants, golf and local area attractions. We would definitely return.
I had my hen weekend at yellowcraig house and it was amazing. The location of the house is fantastic and Eric and Heather couldn't have made us feel more welcome. I would highly recommend this for anyone looking for a beautiful house to spend time with family and friends. We had a BBQ on the Saturday in the glorious garden and everyone said the setting had the wow factor. Many thanks, would love to come back again - Laura
We stayed at Yellowcraig House for 4 nights over New Year and had a lovely time.Before our stay had even began the owners,Eric & Heather couldn't do enough for us. As we had mixed ages (4-70!!) staying over the weekend,it was suggested that a visit prior to us staying would be advantageous.Heather showed us around and discussed sleeping arrangements and was very helpful in organising the slight re-shuffle that was required to accommodate our guests.She was also happy to be available for our food delivery order & put it away too!!! All things that show a personal touch that makes the difference from a good experience to a great one!
The house itself is lovely,we felt we had enough space & the large safe garden was a real bonus for the children in our group.So too was the short walk to yellowcraigs beach and the great children's park only 5 minutes away.
We all thoroughally enjoyed our stay at Yellowcraig House & will definately be back again in the future!
A perfect base for exploring North Berwick and the surrounding area; it was a lovely beach walk into the town. The property was beautifully presented and ideal for our large group. Eric and Heather produced a lovely meal on the evening of our arrival and also recommended Chez Roux at Greywalls Hotel, where we went on the saturday night; another outstanding venue and a memorable meal. All in all it was a perfect location for a perfect weekend and we would heartily recommend it to anyone visiting the area..
This was a fantastic house for a large group of friends. All 6 bedrooms had their own en-suite bathroom. The open plan kitchen and dining room was spacious and very well equipped and easily accommodated 12 of us.
On Friday night the owners, Eric and Heather, cooked a delicious dinner for us. This was a perfect, stress-free way to begin the weekend after a long journey.
The beach is very close by and it is possible to walk along the beach to North Berwick.
We had a great weekend and would definitely stay again
The property was amazing, a wonderful house to meet up with family and friends, 6 ensuite bedrooms, huge kitchen, lovely dining area and lounge. We were catered for on the Friday night which was brilliant and a short taxi ride for a superb restaurant on the Saturday. A breathtaking walk into North Berwick on Saturday. Everything you could want for a fantastic weekend.
Thouroughly recommend this venue, would deffinitely think about staying there again.
A marvellous weekend was had by all.

Visit historic Dirleton and Tantallon Castles, climb aboard a real Concorde plane at the National Museum of Flight or spot puffins and gannets at the Scottish Seabird Centre.

Golf: East Lothian is one of the best regions for golf in Scotland, with 22 courses offering choice to golfers of all standards and tastes. You may recognise many courses - Dunbar, North Berwick, Musselburgh, Gullane, Archerfield and The Open Championship course at Muirfield, are some of the world's oldest and most admired.
East Lothian has a just claim to being the birthplace of golf - the game was played regularly on Musselburgh Links - The Old Course - as far back as 1672. The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, who now play at Muirfield, Gaullane, has records going back to 1744, which makes it the earliest known golf club in the world.
The region offers traditional links and classic inland golf courses, many steeped in history and complimented by modern, challenging, courses. All coupled with friendly clubhouses and affordable green fees. The coastal A198 route, provides easy access for visitors and short journeys between courses.
Gullane is a world renowned name in golf. The spectacular Gullane No 1, 2 and 3 are all first class courses with superb greens and amazing panoramic views. Luffness is another terrific course famous for its long par 4’s and superb putting surfaces. Gullane is also home to The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers, Muirfield.
North Berwick is home to three other top class courses - West Links, The Glen and Whitekirk.
From the property, play a different course each day but spend no more than 10 minutes in the car - ideal!
