An Aberdeenshire farmer who rose to prominence as a result of his battle against Donald Trump's golf resort project has received an award.
Michael Forbes - who refused to sell his land to the American businessman - scooped the Top Scot prize at the Glenfiddich Spirt of Scotland ceremony.
Mr Trump once described Mr Forbes' property, which borders the tycoon's land on the Menie Estate, as a "slum".
Mr Forbes featured heavily in the You've Been Trumped documentary.
Design work for a second golf course close to the Trump International Links is now under way.
