Luxury self catering holiday villa on the edge of Archerfield Golf Course and Spa, close to North Berwick and Gullane. Close to the best beaches and Championship golf courses of Muirfield and Gullane, yet less than half an hour by train or car to the centre of Edinburgh.
Yellowcraig House is a superb 6 bedroom villa - the perfect property to accommodate a large group of guests. Catering in the villa is available as an optional extra - home cooked Scottish specialities using carefully sourced local ingredients such as North Berwick lobster, crab and shrimp; East Lothian salmon, trout and other speciality fish; Aberdeen Angus beef and steaks, venison from the nearby estates; Ballencrieff pork and gammon and of course award-winning haggis. We are also able to provide wine and Scotch malt whisky tasting events to wash everything down...!

Yellow Craig House is in a beautiful location in Archerfield Estate. Beach and forest walks not to mention first class golf courses on the doorstep. The house itself is spacious and very comfortable and tastefully decorated. We all enjoyed congregating round the kitchen island while preparing breakfast. The weather was kind and we were able to use the comfortable garden...

Yet again, another fantastic 5 days @ Yellowcraigs house. Fabulous once again & even the weather was perfect. Thank you yet again to Eric & Heather for a super week with special friends & some great golf thrown in too.

Additional amenities & feature info
Yellowcraig House and Loft is perfect for both golf nuts and beach bums, yet is within easy reach of all that the City of Ediburgh and the rest of the Lothians has to offer. We are very popular for large family get-togethers and have full disabled access, including a convenient ground floor bedroom with walk-in shower/wet room.

There is a luxury spa on site plus The Walled Garden - a cafe/restaurant serving imaginative and delicious menus throughout the day and into the evening; a microbrewery making craft ales on site to savour at the bar or taste and take home; a deli offering the very best of local produce - including fresh fish and live shellfish; and a gallery shop with original crafts, gifts and art to browse and buy. You can also tour the Archerfield Estate on two unusual wheels wi...

Dirleton is most famous for its Castle which was one of the first castles to be built around 1100, introduced by incoming feudal lords from Normandy, Brittany and Flanders. The de Vaux family, who came from Normandy in the 12...
