Peter Crolla, Serafino’s great-grandson, has now established the fourth generation of Crolla’s – a family firm in the true sense of the word.


With over 60 flavours of ice cream to choose from available as a traditional ice cream cones, indulgent sundaes or the unique “Cold-Stone Creation”. Crolla’s is the only ice cream parlour in the west of Scotland to offer this innovative blend of create-your-own ice cream!
