Girls weekend away in the sunshine!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better hen weekend away. The house was fantastic and is in the most amazing location. I have already recommended to a number of people.

Plenty of room for all 15 of us in the 6 large bedrooms each with an ensuite. Eric greeted us and made sure that we knew where everything was and got us the bbq looked out. The house was very modern and every room immaculate. The kitchen was beyond expectation with 3 ovens, 3 dishwashers and a wine fridge which could hold our 40 bottles of prosecco!

We spent most of the time in the garden as we were very lucky with the weather. The garden is lovely with 2 seating areas, so you have the sun all day.

Will be back for another visit soon!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

I booked Yellowcraig House for my best friends hen do, after seeing such great reviews, and we were not disappointed! The house is outstanding, and Eric could not be more friendly and accommodating. He answered all my questions, and I had quite a lot! He recommend a local taxi firm, a spa, and a place to eat, all of which provided fantastic service. Thank you Eric for making a bride to be, and her 14 hens very happy!

Four and half years ago we had my hen here and now we have just had my sister's hen in this phenomenal house! 17 ladies- we all had an absolute ball! Before entry we all went to Fletcher's Spa which is outstanding and then we were warmly welcomed by Eric who showed us around. So much space for dining, wining and playing games. Bedrooms and bathrooms are high quality and downstairs living areas are fabulous. Stunning weather which meant we were able to use the gorgeous garden for yoga in the morning followed by a beach walk which is so close. Highly recommend this house and location to anyone. Only problem won't want to leave! :-)

The perfect location for a golf trip to the area

  • 5 of 5

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.

With over 40 miles of magnificent coastline, golden beaches, rolling countryside, spectacular cliffs, award-winning tourist attractions and the world’s finest selection of links golf courses, East Lothian combines the best of Scotland in miniature! It may feel like a million miles away, but it’s only 30 minutes from Edinburgh by car, train or bus!

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. Kids can get down on the farm at East Links Family Park or walk through the pretty woods from the property to the Treasure Island adventure play park and Yellowcraig Beach - buckets and spades provided! Mums and Dads can enjoy a trip to the Glenkinchie Distillery, and there's more golf than you can imagine with Muirfield, Gullane and North Berwick on your doorstep. A boat trip to the Bass Rock is a must do and water sports, cycling and other outdoor activities abound.

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!
