Turn right, then left past Alford,
Drive on 5 miles then stop.
The crowds of folk will tell you that you're at the Mossatt Shop.

Good old Copy Doug's (scuse me if that's not how it's spelt). There wasn't a commodity on the planet that couldn't be bought there. And as for the ice-cream parlour? ?=)

I attended Kildrummy School, and at lunchtime we used to run down to the Mossat Shop to buy an icecream.

Doug Anderson,proprietor of the above, was known as "Co-opie Doug" due to his connections with the Co-operative Society.As for the icecream,wis it nae the young serving quines fae Lumsden and Rhynie that were the attraction?
