/ Where to take 5yr old climbing 1st time Fort William/Glencoe?
For a more open and airy spot and so probably a little less midgy: theres a sort of a wide crevasse feature on the top of Scimitar Buttress which might be a bit squelchy underfoot, but you cab climb the slabbby walls anywhere at that sort of grade. It's easy enough to get to and nice views too.
That sound like a useful spot: I've never been there!
Other options would be Upper Pinnacle Crag at Polldubh, and Onich Slabs
( http://www.ukclimbing.com/logbook/crag.php?id=9599 ) but you could find either groups under instruction or clouds of midges in situ at either!
Outward Bound Lochiel used to (and prob still do from time to time) go to that spot, a wee easy scramble can be incorporated into the journey to the top.
