The charming well preserved mid 19th century village of McGregor with its quaint, thatched cottages at the foot of the Riviersonderend Mountains, offers outdoor activities, art and crafts, tranquility and relaxation. Surrounded by mountain trails, fruit orchards, olive groves and the vineyards which supply McGregor winery, the village has maintained a rural peaceful ambience inspirational to its artists.
The village lies at the end of the road from Robertson in the Western Cape. Yes, the road ends at McGregor. It was intended to continue the road to Greyton, on the other side of the Sonderend range but, alas, the money for the road was somehow "lost" so it actually ends up in the mountains.
