Ben Vrackie, a nice easy straight forward climb, rewarded with great views from the top.

This looks lovely! We're thinking of doing this when we go back to Scotland but just worried about how steep it might be. We did Snowdon with the four kids last year via the Ranger Path and it's really put them off peaks so we'd love to throw them back into it (the youngest is 12). :D

Hey Icedragon

Ben Vrackie is modertly steep but theres a good well built path the whole way up, well more like a set of stairs albeit a very long set of stairs. Kids shiuldnt have any problems with it at all though :)

Took my nephew up there when he was 7 with no trouble at all.
