Donald Trump has revealed a visualisation of the luxury hotel he intends to build at his Scottish golf resort, only a couple of weeks after announcing that a planning application for the second golf course at the property had been filed.
But the hotel project, which the developer valued at US$150 million will not go ahead if the planned offshore windfarm in the North Sea, near the site, goes ahead, he confirmed. The consortium behind the windfarm submitted its own planning application, for onshore works needed to enable the development, in January.
At 140 bedrooms, the proposed hotel represents a major scaling down of Trump's previous plans: only last October, he spoke of building a 450 room hotel, that, he said, would be the best in Scotland and one of the best in Europe. Local architecture firm Acanthus has designed the hotel.
