Looking for soemwhere not too high that we can potter about on but not get in anyone's way
Abseiling off the top of Mother's Pride at Suidhe Biorach would be a life-affirming experience, although they would have to second Severe to get out.
Down An Teallach would also be great but then you'd need 100m of static rope and they'd need to swim 1/2 a mile to escape.
If you head along the coast from the Glenbrittle campsite (left hand side looking out to sea) for about 800m to 1.5km you'll find some wee sea cliffs. They are very short but you should be able to find a suitable spot to create an anchor and have them abb off. There are several sections where you can easily scramble/walk out after abbing off. I've used several locations there in the past for both adults and kids. It's a nice wee walk as well.
Would have thought there's plenty of options at Neist, including the wee crags beneath the car park, with lots of easy climbing options also. Rock here nowhere near as good as elsewhere at Neist though! Conductor Cove is another obvious option, with some short routes, and also a scramble descent/escape. Also usually fairly sheltered.
Plus the lighthouse would probably be quite interesting for the kids.
