We are a family run business located in the picturesque harbour village of Portsoy in Aberdeenshire on the Moray Firth, Scotland and have a smaller outlet in Turriff. Alex and staff strive to create an exciting range of ice creams and sorbets which are all made in our Portsoy shop using the finest, and when possible, local ingredients. Over the years we have won numerous awards for our ice creams and sorbets at the National Ice Cream Competition and are preferred suppliers of Fasque House, a beautiful wedding venue.

Portsoy has the most beautiful port built in 1692, and the town is very attractive, well worth a visit if you are in the area. The icecream is a good diversion too - reminded me of icecream when I was a kid.

We were on holiday in this lovely part of Scotland and were advised to try this little café and we are glad we did. Service quick and friendly; delicious ice-cream which should be on anyone’s list.

Ice cream that truly tastes of what flavour it says. Jaffa cake was full of bits of jaff. The salted caramel had lots of pieces not like many places where you get one or two bits. The raspberry sorbet was stunning even my husband thought...More
