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.
