Tasked with finding the best cold treats, we embraced our task with gusto (all in the name of research, of course). It's the i-on guide to great ice-cream... 


  • Luca's: Made to a family recipe, the queues at the parlours in Morningside and Musselburgh say it all.

  • Mary's Milk Bar: Serving traditional gelato in unusual flavours in the Grassmarket.
  • Monny Portobello: Artisan Italian gelato and sorbets made daily in this Gelateria by the beach.



  • Crolla's Gelateria: Byres Road favourite serving up milkshakes and over 60 flavours for more than 120 years.
  • Colpi Ice Cream: A Milngavie and Glasgow instituion, making fresh ice cream from a family recipe, using milk from the shores of Loch Lomond.
  • Loop & Scoop: Delicious gelato, ice cream sundaes and 100 per cent vegan churros. They're good at doing them too.
