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.

We were on holiday in the area and followed the great reviews to this fantastic little ice cream parlour tucked away in a little gift shop and post office. The selection of cones, flavours and toppings just makes for half the fun but there's so...More

Great traditional ice cream - lots of choices and variety. Has both internal and external seating available. We loved our ice creams - but be warned - you will have to queue as its extremely popular.

We had noticed that there was always a queue so we decided to try. Incredible choice, great taste and that is someone from Broadstairs where Morellis is based.

This is an amazing wee treat of a place. Always unusual but interesting flavours. The condenst milk is my favourite but like trying any new ones. Waffles are always tempting and smell like heaven.

The most delicious ice cream in Scotland in my opinion. Scoops are really generous and the flavour variety is unreal - peanut mallow has chunks of frozen peanut butter in it which is the dream and the white chocolate fudge sauce is a brilliant addition!!...More

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.

Absolutely amazing place, with so much choice (both ice cream, and toppings!). All 3 flavours I went for were amazing, and the hot fudge sauce is to die for!

We stopped off after having a curry in Banff and on our way to Sandend and both of my children had lovely ice creams. It was 8:30 in the evening and I thought we might not get any ice cream that late but was so...More
