Welcome to Ethical Traveller. I have been writing about ethical, green, responsible, eco, sustainable travel, call it what you will, for the last eight years,  after completing a Masters degree in Responsible Tourism Management. 10157684153_923e00c94a_oDuring this time I have written about the issues of ethical travel not only in my columns in National Geographic Traveller Magazine, The Irish Times and Green Parent Magazine, but also in many other newspapers and magazines. For me, responsible tourism is as much about people as it is about place,and giving a voice to people who have created exemplary, exciting responsible tourism products is one of the best aspects of my job.

I am currently working as full time writer at Responsible Travel, devising destination and activity online travel guides, including one to New York State where, after discoverning a world of mountains, hiking, biking and kayaking all on Manhattan’s doorstep,  I was delighted to persuade the the tourist board to turn their iconic ‘I New York’ heart green. The world of a more ethical form of travel is always full of surprises. And people who are willing to think about the box and create change. I also manage to fit in some freelance travel writing, with trips to go cycling in Northern Portugal, climbing on Clare Island, Mayo and discovering the green lights of Amsterdam some recent highlights.

Thanks  for checking out Ethical Traveller. For frequent news of my travels or general eco travel updates, please check out my own Twitter page.

Happy travelling. Catherine

    Hello Catherine, I wonder if you would be at all interested in our new free app and audio guide. It’s called View from the Train and aims to enhance the experience of travellers on some of Scotland’s main rail routes.

    It is available for journeys from Edinburgh/Glasgow to Inverness, Edinburgh/Glasgow to Aberdeen and Glasgow to Oban and interprets the natural and cultural heritage seen from the train. Each journey contains around 10 audio clips, each about 4 minutes in length, which describe an aspect of the landscape, wildlife or history of the area you are travelling through.

    View from the Train is available for Apple and Android devices from http://www.snh.gov.uk/train. If you are able to have a look (and give it a mention if you think it deserves one), we’d really appreciate it.

    Don’t hesitate to give me a call if you need more information. I’m on 01738 771119 today and on the mobile 07764 449480 for the rest of the week. Thanks, Becky
