The Happy Camper
I stopped off at a very special spot in Glenveagh National Park a few weeks ago. “The Happy Camper” is a real gem of a cafe – surrounded by stunning views of ancient peat bogs with Muckish Mountain standing proudly in the background.

Maria McCormack serves her customers freshly cooked, scrumptious pancakes with a variety of toppings seen in the menu in the photograph below:
Maria smiling for my camera
She is a most genial host and will serve you pancakes accompanied with some mighty craic, lots of smiles and even a song or two!
My pancakes filled with bacon, topped off with maple syrup, tasted Heavenly:
A small table and two chairs help to keep environmental impact to a minimum. Food containers and cutlery are all compostable.
Seated at this tiny blue table, I pondered on times long past, when I climbed HUGE mountains like Muckish. Indeed, I scaled around 25 Scottish mountains over 3000ft, called Munros.
Today, I am content to simply gaze upon these mighty peaks, enjoying the magnificent view.
