Sundae Sundae: Chilling at The Stables

What Tennyson really meant to write was “Summer is here and a young man’s fancy turns lightly to ice cream”. Which is handy because it really is summer here at The Torridon and the Inn now stocks a fine range of ice creams from the Black Isle Dairy.

Already a hit at the Inn, this local Highland ice cream contains the output from a herd of bluegrass jerseys – what better breed for a taste of the country? – and is the work of the Mackenzie family, fourth generation dairy farmers.

They say their ice cream takes less than 24 hours to go from cow to cone and is churned at a slower speed than more traditionally-available American-style hard ice cream.

Gelato is served at a warmer temperature and has less air whipped into it, creating a lovely soft creamy texture. It is also lower in fat – so higher in flavour – than regular ice cream

This is good news for regulars and guests at the Inn and of course a fitting reward after you have been out on the hills with the activities team.

Flavours vary by stock and season. Scottish strawberry ice cream is coming into season now, but other summer flavours include rhubarb fool, Earl Grey mint and mixed berry. Get it while it’s hot!
