If there is one seat which seems to be on the Tories’ radar, it looks like West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine.
The SNP’s Stuart Donaldson won the seat in 2015 with almost 42% of the vote and a majority of more than 7,000 as the party won 56 MPs across the country.
However, the Tories have the seat firmly within their sights with Prime Minister Theresa May and Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson paying a high-profile visit to the constituency just over a month ago.
