I think that most of the protesters who said he was disrupting a area of natural beauty had never even seen or heard of the Menie estate before he decided to announce that he was building the golf course there. Now they are outraged :?
It all a bit of nimbyism.

As it happens, has it occurred to you that a lot of the protesters simply don't want yet another relatively natural area turned into an ugly golf course and that that might have no bearing on where they live? It's very patronising to assume that they are just protesting for the sake of it.
I am only glad that I am on the west side and can head out into the country to escape the grey dullness.
I guess it is subjective but I am yet to see an ugly golf course. Other objections may apply but that is not the strongest.
I live just north of where it will be. Personally I am for it. Despite having the oil the area in Aberdeenshire has been largely ignored for infrastructure for far too long and having a world class golf course nearby should give the area a boost.
The area was ignored by most of the people who live nearby and further away until Donald turned up. If it hadn’t been Donald and the circus he brought I doubt there would have been half as much interest and outrage.
