Yellowcraig

Yellowcraig Beach is a natural cove with spectacular views over to the 1885 lighthouse on Fidra Island which is said to be the inspiration for Robert Louis Stevenson's book Treasure Island. It's very popular with families, with an adventure playpark, a great network of nature trails and a BBQ site.

In the middle of the woods, you will discover a 'Disperse' a piece of sculpture designed in conjunction with local people representing the dispersal of seeds. As the years pass, the sculpture is intended to change and slowly be reclaimed by the natural environment.
