Trip Planner Europe  /  UK  /  Scotland  /  Perth and Kinross  /  Glenfarg
Glenfarg is a small village in the Ochil Hills in the county of Perth and Kinross, central Scotland. Until 14 June 1964, the village had a railway station on the main line between Perth and Edinburgh via Kinross. Although not recommended for closure under the Beeching Axe, the line nevertheless closed to passengers and freight on 5 January 1970, resulting in slower passenger services to Perth via longer routes. The former railway line is now the route of the M90 motorway, which runs along the eastern periphery of the village. At its peak, the village became a popular holiday destination, boasting 4 hotels. Services in the village include a church, small shop, tennis courts, riding school, primary school with nursery, and a hotel that has not been sold by John hewitt, with a second recently having been bought out for housing development.The 2008 construction work at Glenfarg Water Treatment Works won the accolade of "Most Considerate Site" at the 2009 Considerate Contractors Awards. The award was presented to the Black & Veatch Site Manager George Smart and the Scottish Water Solutions Project manager Steve Mason. This project also won 2 awards at the Scottish Water Awards 2009 "Delivering through Partnership" and "Outperforming the Capital Programme"It is the source of the River Farg which was badly polluted in May 2014 when an employee at the Glenfarg Water Treatment Works at East Blair Farm left a valve open, allowing water to flow into the aluminium sulphate tank. That tank then overflowed, flooding a corridor and draining into the River Farg over a period of several hours.
