Best ice cream in the area, especially with the warm toffee sauce. Been coming here for years and it never changes.

Definitely one of the best ice-creams I have had. I have tried ice-cream in many countries including Italy. The very special Scottish flavours are really, really good. A bonus is the excellent coffee (espresso). Decaf is also available. I must come back again.
