Plans for a new clubhouse at Donald Trump's Aberdeenshire golf course have been approved.

The granite-clad building would replace the existing temporary clubhouse at Menie.

The plans were approved at Aberdeenshire Council's Formartine area committee subject to a number of conditions being met.

The businessman has said a hotel and second course will only proceed if a wind farm off the coast is rejected.

A spokesperson for Mr Trump said: "We are grateful to the council for their continued support and look forward to starting construction soon with a view to completing the clubhouse next spring.

"Our championship golf course and practice facilities continue to attract glowing international reviews and will soon be complemented by a world class clubhouse."
