Glenfarg (Scottish Gaelic: Gleann Fairg) is a small village in the Ochil Hills in the county of Perth and Kinross, central Scotland. It had a population of 486 in the UK census of 2001. The village benefited from a station on the Perth to Kinross railway line until 14 June 1964, the line was closed to passengers and freight on 5 January 1970. The North British Railway experienced problems because of the landscape, which required 2 tunnels within 4 miles.

Glenfarg was located in the parish of Arngask in the old county of Perthshire, Scotland from 1891 until 1975.

The Gazetteer for Scotland also provided some of this information.
