The large-scale development by Trump Golf Scotland will potentially thrust the North East of Scotland into worldwide fame as a golf destination. This research adopted a qualitative approach involving a focus group and interviews. The focus group comprised of representatives from Trump Golf Scotland and the interview stage comprised of stakeholders’ based in the Aberdeen area. Results suggested the majority of the sample were in favour of the development and research also identified that the economic benefits outweighed environmental concerns. However, negative social impacts were identified as: stakeholder conflict, the potential for a tourist enclave and dilution of Scottish culture.
