Glenfarg village sits at the southern end of this picturesque and narrow glen. It's sheltered position ensures that Glenfarg benefits from a mild climate all year round, making the village an ideal base for touring.
The glen is approximately four miles long and at the northern half twists and turns with the course of the Farg river. The railway, now closed, ran alongside the glen and featured two tunnels within a two mile stretch - such were the difficulties encountered by the North British Railway when it was constructed.
Although less than 40 minutes drive from the centre of Scotland's capital city, Glenfarg retains its relaxed village atmosphere. The accommodation in this pretty village is of a high standard, built to accommodate passengers on the railway which once wound its way through this peaceful glen.
Relax in Glenfarg's beautiful parks, some of the finest and most picturesque in all Perthshire! Let the fresh air and peaceful environment put a spring in your step before embarking on any the many local walks in the area.
With its excellent road links, Glenfarg is ideally placed for exploring further afield. All of fascinating Fife - including St Andrews and the pretty East Neuk fishing villages - are on your doorstep and Edinburgh is just thirty minutes away.
The proximity of larger towns and cities means that it is easy to reach evening entertainments of all types but do not overlook the regular entertainments laid on by hotels, inns and restaurants in the Kinross area itself. You will be made welcome.
The village offers a hotel with good food, a village shop, tennis courts and a play park for children.
