Brilliant ice creams - that is evident from the queues that develop over the day but worth waiting for. Great staff. A must when visiting Stoney!

There was finally a nice sunny day so we decided to go out from Aberdeen for wee trip! Finally we ended up in Stonehaven at Aunty Betty's. Pros: Good taste Huge size of portions Big variety from toppings as well Big que which is normally a good sign... It won't take too long anyway Cons: Bit pricey I would prefer... More

Always great, always busy (even in rain!) so much thought gets put into the displays. Brilliant range of flavours and sauces and the toppings are what makes it! I would especially recommend the Eton Mess sundae or the tablet ice cream! Real melt in the mouth bits of tablet through the ice cream! Even sell dog treats for people walking... More

The icecream here is just great. The honeycomb icecream was delicious with lovely toppings. The strawberry cheesecake was equally as good. The only problem each time I go in is making a choice.

There are so many sweets to feast your eyes on, the layout and decor of the shop was really lovely. The ice cream I had was to die for, you could make concoctions with various different toppings. My two night stay in Stonehaven, I went back to Aunty Bettys to stock up on sweets, where I also found a lovely... More

This place is amazing, the ice creams are so epic. The only downside is that all the flavours sound so good, it's hard to choose. I wished we lived closer so we could come here more often! We can highly recommend the following flavours: daim, salted caramel, iron bru, cherry cola

We love Aunty Betty's Ice cream. It is very expensive though which prohibits going terribly often. They are pretty good with food allergies and will wash and sterilise scoops so that the sorbet doesn't become contaminated with milk. It's one of the few places which usually offers a couple of choices for dairy free lovers of ice creams (sorbet).

Visited with 4 kids so tried a good few flavours, all delicious. There are the old favourites as well as local 'delicacies' - scottish tablet and irn bru - and more unusual flavours. We tried salted caramel, daim, cherry cola, cookies and cream and bounty. A scoop is £3 but you get a large waffle cone filled with ice cream... More

Long queue, plenty choice, wee bit pricey though, same price with or without toppings, ice cream was lovely though, lots of other wee things to encourage spending too :)
