Donald Trump 'expected to visit Scotland'

Mr Trump's Turnberry gold course would be a potential destination for the US president
Donald Trump is expected to visit Scotland on his trip to the UK this summer, BBC Scotland understands.The full itinerary for the US president's visit has not yet been finalised.But BBC Scotland correspondent Glenn Campbell said the current plan includes a Scottish leg to his tour. Mr Trump, whose mother was born on the Isle of Lewis, owns golf resorts in Aberdeenshire and at Turnberry in Ayrshire. Speaking in January, he described his regret at not being able to visit Scotland since he became US president, describing the country as a "very special place" with "very special people".
Trump 'should visit Scotland, not London'
Trump 'would love to return to Scotland'
It was confirmed last month that Mr Trump will visit the UK on Friday 13 July, with the trip expected to include a meeting with the Queen.However, it will not be the full-blown state visit Mr Trump was promised when Prime Minister Theresa May visited the White House in January last year.The president was recently urged by UK-based supporters to stay away from London during his visit and instead focus on his "ancestral home" in Scotland.In a letter to the US president, six conservative groups said the move would allow Mr Trump to avoid "major protests, crime and disorder".And they suggested he meets the Queen at Balmoral to avoid "potential embarrassment" in London.Mr Trump cancelled a planned trip to London to open the new US embassy in Vauxhall earlier this year, complaining the move to an "off location" south of the Thames had been a "bad deal".But critics said his decision may have been driven by a fear of protests.
