Kaylee McIntosh drowned after the accident in 2007
The parents of an army cadet who drowned on a boating exercise are to sue the Ministry of Defence for £525,000.
Kaylee McIntosh, 14, from Fyvie in Aberdeenshire, died when a boat overturned on Loch Carnan on South Uist in the Outer Hebrides in August 2007.
After a fatal accident inquiry a sheriff said precautions could have prevented her death.
She was under the boat for 90 minutes before it was noticed she was missing.
Her parents had expressed "disgust" after the publication, earlier this year, of the report into her death after a fatal accident inquiry.
She had been wearing the wrong type of life jacket, which resulted in her being pinned beneath the boat.
Kaylee's mother Lesley said: "The money means absolutely nothing to us.
"We are taking this action to try get the army to sit up and take notice of us."
The couple's solicitor Jayne Crawford said: "The sum sued for is an indication of the terrible anguish the harrowing circumstances of Kaylee's death have caused her whole family."
Sheriff Alasdair MacFadyen presided over a 10-day fatal accident inquiry.
He said the inquiry had found that a number of precautions could have been taken which would have avoided the accident or prevented Kaylee's death.
Brigadier David Allfrey, commanding officer of 51 Brigade - responsible for the Army Reserve and Cadets - said at the time: "We are deeply sorry for the failings that contributed to Kaylee's death."
