BARACK OBAMA believes Scotland has “a lot to offer the world” and promised to return after his first visit to the country.
The former US president flew into Edinburgh Airport on Friday for a speech in front of politicians and business leaders at a charity dinner in the capital.
However, he made the most of his time by first going to the home of golf for a round at the Old Course in St Andrews.
Philanthropist Sir Tom Hunter invited Mr. Obama to speak at a private charity event attended by around 1,200 people, including First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, author JK Rowling and musician Annie Lennox.
Profits from the event, where tables of 10 started at £5,000, are to be split between children’s charities in Scotland and the Obama Foundation, set up by the former president and his wife Michelle.
