Donald Trump’s son arrives in Scotland ahead of the President

Donald Trump’s son Eric has arrived in Scotland ahead of his father’s visit to the UK.

Eric Trump is playing golf at the Trump International Golf Links at Menie, Aberdeenshire, and also plans to visit Trump Turnberry, near Girvan, South Ayrshire.

The 34-year-old tweeted on Wednesday that he was looking forward to visiting both golf courses.

The Trump plane landed at Aberdeen Airport on Thursday morning.

The middle son of the US president is executive vice-president of the Trump Organisation and oversees the golf resorts.

He attended the reopening of the Turnberry course in 2016 alongside his father.

Donald Trump is due to arrive in London on Thursday and will meet the Prime Minister and the Queen.

He is expected to leave on Friday night for Scotland and spend the weekend playing golf at his Turnberry resort.

Protests are planned across the country, including one set to take place at the Aberdeenshire course on Saturday.
