If you were sitting at home on Burns’ Night to a plate of haggis, neeps and tatties, and started thinking of the perfect Burns’ night desert, Mackie’s of Scotland has you covered.

The ice cream was piped in to Mackie’s 19.2 ice cream parlour in Marischal Square, Aberdeen, live on Facebook. The parlour’s recent opening was covered by our in-house PR video team.
