Majority 4,344 9.6
Turnout 45,263 73.0 +6.4

Sitting MP: Stephen Gethins (SNP)
Prediction: SNP hold

Stephen Gethins has had a high profile as SNP Europe spokesman and this may see him home, but a LibDem gain is certainly not out of the question here. The key for Ming Campbell’s successor is to target soft Tory votes. But in all likelihood, Gethins will hang on.
