Presidential hopeful Donald Trump extends Scottish visit
The billionaire will travel to his golf course in Aberdeen after the opening of Turnberry.
Controversial presidential hopeful Donald Trump has revealed plans to extend his Scottish trip.
The billionaire will travel to his golf course in Aberdeen after attending the official opening of Trump Turnberry on June 24.
The course in Ayrshire welcomed its first visitors on Wednesday after an eight-month £200m renovation.
Mr Trump, who is the presumptive nominee for the Republican Party in the 2016 US elections, purchased Turnberry in 2014, two years after opening the Trump International Golf Links near Balmedie.
On Friday, he tweeted: "After Trump Turnberry I will be visiting Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe, to see my great club, Trump International Golf Links."
He also intends to visit Trump Doonbeg in Ireland before returning to the US on June 25.
Work recently began on an offshore wind farm a few miles from his Aberdeen course, despite a long-running legal battle which has caused a spat between the property developer and former First Minister Alex Salmond.
Judges at the Court of Session rejected Mr Trump's first challenge over the Scottish Government's decision to grant planning permission for the wind farm in February 2014.
The property tycoon appealed against that decision in January 2015, but that appeal was also turned down six months later. A third legal challenge at the UK's Supreme Court was rejected by judges in December.
Mr Trump said he plans take his fight to European courts.
