TWO Dunfermline teens completed their Fife Coastal Path walking challenge last weekend.

Adam Payne and Andrew Glen crossed their finish line on Saturday, completing the Path's 118.2 miles over the course of nine days and raising £720 for their three chosen charities, the Fife Coast and Countryside Trust, Breast Cancer Now and the Rosyth Sea Cadets.

Former Sea Cadet Adam told the Press: "It was pretty surreal coming to the end!"

While Andrew chimed in: "I'm glad to have been part of the trip and we are blown away by the generosity from everyone who donated and how much support everyone has given us."

Walking the trail in reverse, so that when they finished they were closer to home and able to meet up with friends and family for some much-needed support as they reached the last leg of their challenge, Adam and Andrew finished up in Kincardine.

Experiencing ups and downs along their journey, a highlight was visiting the pubs along the path.

Adam continued: "Visiting the local pubs and trying the local beer was quite enjoyable. The local people were very kind, they offered to fill up our water bottles and let us charge our phones."

Using their phones to track where they were going and update their journey was vital for the boys so the pub visits were as fun as they were necessary! However, it wasn't all pints and chatting to patrons, there were some difficult aspects of the trek.

Andrew recalled: "A particular stretch of road, between Guardbridge and St Andrews, I found particularly tricky. Our bags were still very heavy and we were along a roadside in the blazing sun and we knew it was just over three hours left.

"After our lunch stop we just had to power through and that was a tricky stretch of the walk for me."

While Adam added: "I think one of the worst mornings was in Aberdour. It had started raining while we were camping and our tent that we thought was waterproof wasn't so waterproof after all!"

Laughing through even their worst moments, the pair are in high spirits after completing their challenge.

Andrew continued: "I am just so happy for everyone that cared and supported us. It might be a while before we do another walk but I'd be up for it!"

They are hoping to reach £750 on their GoFundMe page, to donate and help them reach their goal, search Walking the Fife Coastal Path on GoFundMe.
