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.

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.

Whenever you go through Portsoy... ALWAYS stop for ice cream from this amazing shop! It is sooooo good! I would highly recommend their condensed milk ice cream, their Nutella ice cream and their Raspberry and Mint ice cream! We were here last week when staying in Portsoy. YUM!! 😊
