Donald Trump visited his Balmedie course earlier this year.

Mr Trump, whose golf course opened in July 2012, beat off strong competition from Democrat rival Hillary Clinton.

He has visited the area on several occasions, the most recent being earlier this year.

Mr Trump is half Scottish - his mother Mary MacLeod being from Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis. She grew up in a simple croft until she landed in Manhattan at the age of 20 and her first language was Gaelic.
