A much larger demonstration was staged in Edinburgh, where 10,000 people weaved through the capital's streets in an anti-Trump protest as amused tourists looked on and motorists beeped their horns in support.

Police were still trying to find a paraglider who breached a no-fly zone Friday night and flew a Greenpeace protest banner over the resort.

There has been no word from Donald Trump about how welcome he feels in Scotland, but to be greeted like this in his own resort is certain to dampen his mood after a tense United Kingdom trip, which the British media dubbed "as a wrecking visit by the ally from hell". "Tomorrow I go to Helsinki for a Monday meeting with Vladimir Putin", he wrote at 5:43 a.m.

Trump did not criticize the actions of the Russian spies nor President Vladimir Putin, who he will see on Monday in Helsinki, for a meeting and news conference that many of Trump's advisers have warned against.

Speaking to journalists today after playing golf at the Trump International Golf Links in Balmedie, Mr Trump Jnr said the "foolish proposal was now irrelevant". He has frequently criticized Obama - an unusual move for US presidents on foreign soil - and continued apace with his attacks on the news media.

In a tweet, the President said, "I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf - my primary form of exercise!"

Trump has repeatedly said the investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 USA election - which he casts as a "rigged witch hunt" - makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow. "Still hurting!" Trump said.

Flying restrictions have been put in place around the resort and nearby Glasgow Prestwick Airport, which was bought by Scottish ministers in 2013.

White House Correspondents' Association President Margaret Talev said in a statement that "saying a news organization isn't real doesn't change the facts and won't stop us from doing our jobs".

"No Trump, no KKK, no racist U.S.", protesters could be heard saying from their spot near the rough.

The SNP government overturned the councillors' decision shortly after golf-loving nationalist Alex Salmond took control, kicking off a short and tempestuous bromance with Trump who called Salmond "an fantastic man". The "Trump baby" blimp depicting the president as a diaper-clad infant, unveiled Friday amid widespread protests against the president in London, also made an appearance. "They didn't!" Acosta had objected to Trump dismissing the news outlet as "fake news". The Kremlin has denied that the Russian state interfered in the election.

The resort is one of two golf hotels owned by Trump in Scotland.

Trump questioned why Barack Obama had not acted on claims of Russian meddling if the Federal Bureau of Investigation had informed the then president ahead of the 2016 election.

"I think that those people, they like me a lot, and they agree with me on immigration", Trump said of the Scots earlier this week, according to Quartz, adding, "I think that's why you have Brexit in the first place, because of immigration".
