A Moray ice cream parlour has a special reason for remembering the Royal Highland Show this year as they emerged from the prestigious event with an ‘RHS Champion’ award.
The Fochabers Ice Cream Parlour is already renowned throughout the north east, established just a few years ago and already considered a must-stop venue for locals and visitors alike.
With a five-star Tripadvisor rating few leave the parlour without making a return journey – with the most recent review on the travel website commenting: “The flavours are fantastic and the owner is a genius.
“It has received so many awards which are well deserved – the staff are always lovely and very chatty, best ice cream ever.”
The parlour is owned and operated by Sheila Gray, who recently invented a special three-coloured ice cream that represented the RAF Benevolent Fund logo – much to the delight of customers and the local branch of the forces charity.
Now Moray’s politicians have lined up to praise the latest award, with Richard Lochhead MSP saying: “This is a fantastic achievement for Fochabers Ice Cream Parlour.
“The Royal Highland Show sees the best produce Scotland has to offer and when that is amongst the best in the world it is really tough competition.
“To achieve a Champion award is a huge accolade and it is thoroughly deserved by this innovative Moray business.”
Moray’s MP Angus Robertson added: “This is a great local business that formed only a few short years ago and they have made huge achievements in that time.
“The award at the Royal Highland Show against top competition is great achievement. Well done to them.”
