The story of Donald Trump's contentious battle to get a super golf resort built amid the sand dunes of the Menie Estate, on the Scottish Aberdeenshire coast, has been emotively covered by the documentary You've Been Trumped, which follows local farmer and fisherman Michael Forbes' ongoing struggle to keep hold of his family's 23-acre farm, amid mounting pressure to sell up and have it bulldozed flat.
