Soundwaves Cottage
Seatown Gardenstown
AB45 3ZR
Offering stunning Sea views and unique Harbourside location this Heritage Former Fisherman’s Cottage was named Soundwaves not only because of the sound of the waves outside the windows but because the worldwide hit “Sailing” as sung by Rod Stewart is widely understood to have been composed inside the cottage.

The Cottage enjoys one of the best locations in Gardenstown with un-interrupted sea views from every room. This Moray Firth Shoreside Cottage, recently renovated throughout sleeps 6 to 8 people and is comfortably heated by a mixture of electric storage convector heating; along with two Supplementary solid fuel stoves, perfect for a cosy log fire in the winter. Soundwaves has a large designer kitchen, bathroom with a free standing bath and large walk in shower. A further en suite shower room is available upstairs and has a large lounge. Every room offers stunning views of the Aberdeenshire coast.

This is the perfect union between land and water along the Moray Firth in the Scottish region of the Grampian Highlands where one third of the whole worldwide marine life from Seals and Dolphins to fine Crab and Lobster is said to be preserved.
