However, the relationship cooled when Trump's promise to create 6,000 jobs and invest £1 billion failed to materialise, and Trump began interfering with the SNP's flagship plan to make Scotland a renewable energy powerhouse.
"I'm going to Scotland while I wait for the meeting", Trump told reporters earlier on the trip. "That is a handsome woman".
Mr Trump will also be preparing for his meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday, his aides say.
The president owns two golf courses in Scotland, one in Aberdeenshire and his Turnberry resort in the southwest.
He added: "The weather is lovely, and this place is incredible!" "I did it. You got me", Mr Trump said, referring to Mr Putin. He was also seen posing for photos.
At his golf course in Turnberry, Scotland, President Trump seemed unfazed by a handful of demonstrators.
Separating the protesters from the golf course was a line of police, some on horses. Snipers were also perched atop a nearby tower overlooking the vast property.
The protesters were among the thousands who came out in Scotland and England in opposition to the U.S. president's visit to both countries.
Some 10,000 people marched on Saturday, local time, through the Scottish capital of Edinburgh, while police searched for a paraglider who breached a no-fly zone and flew a protest banner over the resort in western Scotland where Mr Trump and his wife, Melania, are staying for the weekend.
Scottish police said they were trying to trace the paraglider who flew a Greenpeace protest banner over the golf resort on Friday evening.
Celtics fan remembered at funeral by playing NBA2K in Kyrie jersey
Ball is life ... and the family of Renard Matthews used his love of the Celtics so others would remember him as they do. Matthews would usually stay at home and only venture outside to walk the dog, his mother, Temeka Matthews, told WGNO-TV.
Police said they were looking for the person responsible for flying the banner. A choir, a bagpiper, a tambourine band and poetry readings added to the carnival spirit.
"I don't think anything will immediately make a change to Donald Trump". The horrific scenes at the Mexican border are just the latest example of his repudiation of decent human values.
Protesters flew the same six-metre inflatable orange Trump baby balloon that was used near the British parliament in London on Friday.
The protesters did not appear to put off President Trump, who at one point walked to the edge of the fairway trailed by a dozen buggies loaded with secret service agents in order to wave at the demonstrators.
Full of hot air: The baby Trump blimp was inflated for the U.S. president's arrival on Friday.
In Saturday's tweets, Trump tried to blame former President Barack Obama for failing to stop the Russians from working to help him win the 2016 election.
There have been calls for Monday's meeting between the United States and Russian presidents to be cancelled, after the USA charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with election interference.
The charges shine an even brighter spotlight on Trump's treatment of Putin, who has repeatedly denied that Russian Federation sought to skew the election that Trump, a Republican, unexpectedly won.
"I read reports where that won't be possible, but I believe after speaking with the prime minister's people and representatives and trade experts it will absolutely be possible". "I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it".
And John McCain, a leading Republican senator and Trump critic, said Mr Trump must hold Mr Putin accountable or not proceed with the meeting.
