lenfarg 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
lthough 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, a perfect example of which is the Glenfarg Hotel, a fine Victorian Hotel (circa 1898) built to accommodate passengers on the railway which once wound its way through this peaceful glen.
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.
