Michael Forbes is Top Scot
An Aberdeenshire farmer who fought a long-running battle against American billionaire developer Donald Trump, has been named Top Scot at a high profile awards ceremony.
Michael Forbes took the honour at the Spirit of Scotland Awards where he was praised for his stance against the tycoon’s north-east golf development.
Mr Forbes won the Top Scot prize at the Glenfiddich Spirt of Scotland ceremony in Edinburgh.
Donald Trump once branded the farmer’s property, which borders the Menie Estate, as a slum.
