    Link: You`ve Been Trumped - Scottish homeowners take on Donald Trump as he buys up one of Scotland`s last wilderness areas to build a golf resort.

    This has been getting forced through for the past few years here. It`s an incredible demonstration of the power of money. As if we need ANOTHER bloody golf course anyway. He says that it`s a memorial to honour his Mum, who came from Aberdeenshire. I think a statue and a pot of cash for the local community might have been a more fitting memorial... Git.

    The majority of the local community wanted nothing to do with it, yet it has been forced upon them by the Scottish ministers, whose pockets are undoubtedly being lined by Trump. The area was remote, peaceful, beautiful, and cultivated by generations of Scottish families. Aberdeen council has used compulsory purchase laws to force homeowners to sell their property. It`s a total shame. Now they`ll have a big golf course/club house/tourists/foreign workers, and Trump will have more money.

    Trump is an non-nice individual but it was the government that sold those lands in the first place. They are to blame.

    I want to see this. It`s like the real-life Scottish Goonies. You know, without the pirates/adventure/Truffle Shuffle... so mostly it`s just the dickwads trying to buy the land.

    Come on, Scotland- Goonies never say die!!!

    This is a movie? Awww hell. So, where we the authorities then? Huh? You can`t blame Trump for this. If it really was "a threat to the environment", then where was the UK govt`?

    Also, that looks like a terrible location for a golf resort, too cold and rainy... what was he thinking?

    "One of scotlands last wilderness areas? Have you even been to scotland? The entire country is basically a wildeness. Hell they have hundreds of small wilderness islands."

    EXACTLY!!!!!

    This madest is why protesting is not taken seriously in any developed nation. People whine about anything and everything so when something that matters more than the rest comes along everyone`s already sick of hearing people whine about everything else.

    Personally I prefer nature over golf courses, but that`s what state forests are for, so we can have a little bit of everything that makes us happy.

    Complete douche.
    I feel sorry for him. Everything about his life is fake. His wife, gorgeous lady, is in no way interested in him for his personality, let alone looks. It`s all about the money. Now he`s picking fights will locals to make a golf court. All that space and he needs to have it THERE EXACTLY? Seems like he`s overcompensating for the lack of meaning in his life so all he has is the power obtained though money. Very hallow life, it seems to me. This man needs to evaluate his life. Sad..

    @Buiadh I agree that Scotland has many beautiful areas of wilderness, but I`ll be damned if that means we should sell them to spoiled rich kids! BTW if any of you foreigners want to visit Scotland - stay in Glasgow and visit Loch Lomond. Then do a small walk in Glencoe (find a B&B), Then spend 2 days in Edinburgh. A whisky distillery tour is also a good idea. Try one Lowland, several highlands, then one or two island distilleries. Then go to Ireland, it`s great too :)

    Aye, this stuff Trump is doing is crazy.

    I`m an Aberdonian - I`ve seen it as it happened. The only member of the local authority to stand up to Trump was ridiculed in the local press, half the population has been driven into believing itll be good for the local economy when it`s unlikely any money will filter back to the city. Trump is a horrible bully, and unfortunately those who are supposed to represent us have completely ignored us, and we`ll have a new (exclusive and expensive) golf course.

    Sad times.

    "A whisky distillery tour is also a good idea. Try one Lowland, several highlands, then one or two island distilleries"

    Two weeks, one week to muck around in the lowlands and highlands... and one glorious week of toffee, smoke, peat, smoke, spiced fruit, smoke, and more lingering smoke on Islay.

    And if you`ve still got time..go up to Orkney and find out why Higland Park is so highly rated.

    where was the UK govt`?
    Thinking with their wallets instead of listening to their constituents.

    Also, that looks like a terrible location for a golf resort, too cold and rainy... what was he thinking?
    Haha oh LazyMe... welcome to Scotland :P

    A golf course isn`t the worst thing.....
    We already have more than 500 of them, more per capita than any other country in the world. And a golf course is a pretty bad thing when it`s where your house used to be.
