Of course the problem with Conservative voting in Scotland is two fold - One; the largest people mass area around Glasgow were brought up on a diet of socialism. They still vote thinking that Labour Party philosophy is "for the people"
Two; (And this is crucial) Scotland has never had a real leadership! Apart from William Wallace, Robert the Bruce and the Stuarts who became expats anyway, - Scotland never had monarchial or political administration.
The basis of Conservatism is authority vested with the people, which of course is alien to the socialist mentality. We observe a similar dichotomy in America with Republican vs Democrat! But Scotland never having experienced a specific governing body of any ilk, cannot perceive the benefits obtained thereof. We here in Scotland are therefore destined to wander aimlessly from Westminster to Brussels without the hindsight of how to live under a reigning anybody.
Democracy of course is a fable and has never existed anywhere. Oligarchy is how all Western nations rule themselves.
