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.

Called in here for ice cream last Tuesday, lovely shop and staff were really nice too. I had white chocolate and ferrero rocher ice cream, absolutely amazing! Reasonably priced for artisan ice cream too. Wish I didn't live 9 hours away or I definitely would have taken some home!

The home made vanilla is to die for. We were in Cullen for a week and managed to squeeze in four visits to Portsoy for pudding!

Can't understand why this... More

Lovely ice cream with so many interesting flavours to choose from. Even offered a tasting of flavours before finally buying. Ended up also with an ice cream take away dessert!

Was great to return to Portsoy Ice Cream, this small cafe is always busy for a good reason, the ice cream quality and varieties are fabulous. Treat yourself, I do, each time I'm in the area.

All I can advise is don't count your calories, points or syns as this is just heaven on a plate. Iv just had a freshly made warm waffle with Jaffa cake ice cream with hot toffee sauce poured over. OMG all I can say is yum yum and I don't think I will eat for the rest of the day.... More
