Donald Trump's warning was about the damage to all Scottish tourism with offshore wind farms, but specifically around his proposed $1.2 billion golf resort. Trump's appearance did not disappoint as part media event, part circus.

He came, he saw, he blustered.
Donald Trump on Wednesday swept into Scotland’s parliament to demand the country end plans for an offshore wind farm he fears will spoil the view at his exclusive new $750-million-pound ($1.2-billion) golf resort.
In a typically blunt display, the New York property tycoon told an inquiry into renewable energy to stop the wind power efforts in the country’s north.
When challenged to produce hard evidence about his claims on the negative impact of turbines, Trump said: “I am the evidence, I am a world class expert in tourism.”
The public gallery burst into laughter.
