Jim is passionate about the environment. He’s a mountain and wild ridge runner, mountaineer and long distance path trekker. Ultimate Field Trips combine his love for nature and his work as an international executive leadership coach, trainer and educator in the energy sector.
He has more than 35 years’ experience as an executive coach and as the facilitator of high-impact, participative training workshops. He is a speaker who has delivered keynotes at conferences throughout the world.
Jim is a Chartered Occupational Health, Safety and Environmental Consultant, fire engineer and a member of the Chartered Management Institute specialising in transformational leadership, optimising personal growth and organisational resilience.
He was severely ill with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) and unable to walk for some time and is walking proof of the power of personal energy work. He now incorporates his research into internal energy into his work, allowing him to integrate mind, body and spirit empowerment techniques into his coaching.
The key discovery for Jim was that when we walk in harmony with our environment, nature’s universal energy inspires and heals, gives direction to our internal compass. Jim is a zest catalyst helping people to show up in the world as they Dream, Dare, Dazzle.
Why Loch Leven?Our venue borders the Loch Leven National Nature Reserve that lies midway between Edinburgh and Perth in the shadow of the Lomond Hills. Loch Leven is Scotland’s largest lowland loch and one of the most important sites for waterfowl in Britain. It is a unique natural environment, a wonderful spot to connect with nature. It's also easy to get to and steeped in fascinating history - ask JJ for more on that!. The walking is gentle, the views stunning and the food at Loch Leven's Larder as tasty and fresh as can be. All in all, a perfect combination! Oh, and if walking is out of the question, you can just tune in as you admire the view...

FAQs And Disclaimer
What Might I Expect?
A gentle yet powerful process that allows you to shed worries and blocks, relax and gain a stronger connection to your innate power.
We meet at our indoor venue and start the day by savouring a cup of specially relaxing oolong tea followed by a mindfulness and relaxation session led by JJ to get you in the zone.
This is followed by a session where we start to join the dots of connection and learn a little about the history and unique features of the beautiful surrounding landscape. Jim will lead us on a short, mindful walk before lunch, whatever the weather. Do remember to bring your all-weather gear as the Scottish weather is anything but predictable!
Lunch follows in the venue’s restaurant where there is one or in a nearby café. After lunch we regroup before heading out once again, individually or in groups, to walk, sit, breathe and connect. Back inside we’ll drink some more relaxing oolong tea before a final group session led by JJ.
It’s our intention that you will shed some of your worries and anxieties and learn how to keep yourself in a more empowered state once you go back into the realities of everyday life. You might feel physically lighter or you might feel more centred and calm, ready to handle whatever life throws at you.
We hope you’ll feel you had a load of fun, too!
Is This Spiritual?
Yes and no… What we’re doing is bringing spirituality, science and practicality together in one place to help you navigate everyday life. We take on board the latest research into quantum and unified field theory, add some mindfulness techniques and breathe some fresh air into it all.
What Should I Bring With Me?
An open mind and a willingness to let go! Otherwise, we want you to be comfortable, so wear what feels good.
The walks we go on won’t be taxing, but do bring sturdy walking shoes or wellies, waterproof jackets and warm layers.
We will be venturing out into the countryside whatever the weather (except in severe conditions, which we don’t anticipate!) so all-weather clothing is advised. In Scotland, the weather can be unpredictable even in summer!
Is Lunch Included?
Tea, coffee and water are provided but lunch will be at your own expense.
At Loch Leven’s Larder there is a cafe that serves great food. Many of the ingredients come straight from their farm – they’re big on the farm to fork concept.
Fortingall Village Hall has no cafe but the Fortingall Hotel is a stone’s throw away and there are many places nearby to suit all tastes.
Where can we stay?
There are plenty of hotels and B&Bs in the area. Look online for places to stay in Kinross and Loch Leven areas as well as Scotlandwell and Kinnesswood.
There are plenty of options in and around Fortingall, too. Search for accommodation in Glen Lyon or Aberfeldy (the nearest town).
Why Don’t You Include Accommodation?
We think it’s important for you to choose where you will feel comfortable. There are plenty of options in the areas where we run our events. Please check out the suggestions below to help you find your ideal place to stay.
