3. Low turnout?

Turnout was actually pretty high... they just didn't vote for Labour.

I'd say that the real reason is that they were perceived by some to be too far left... and by others to be too far right (with socialists in Scotland believing that the party was now neo liberal and not sufficiently socialist). And, of course, the Tories benefited by being in power already.
