Our first visit and it won't be our last. So many flavours to choose from and every one is worth sampling. They allow you to do that. Two great scoops for £2.80 and well worth it.

neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
