Things to do

Here are a few things for you to do
  • Apart from the area hiking trails – The Rooikat, Boesmanskloof – there are different walks on the farm.
  • Swimming, canoeing, (fishing?) on the Whipstock dam with clear mountain water.
  • Commons room with a TV, lounge, fireplace and the Talking Bull Pub, named in honour of Brutus, the sire and squire of the farm. (We are not licensed so bring your own.)
  • Billiards (in an adults only lounge area)
  • Library including documentary DVDs on a wide range of subjects and some classic movies.
  • Wine cellars – there are numerous wineries in the Breede River Valley with cellar tours and wine tasting.
  • McGregor is an historic village full of interesting buildings and quiet roads.
  • Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve lies close to the village with birds a-plenty. There is a bird hide on the edge of the water. The Rooikat Trail in the reserve is a day hike and is particularly beautiful in late August and September.
  • The Boesmanskloof Trail is 16kms to Grey ton. Hikers coming from Grey ton can be fetched at trail end 7kms from Whipstock. (McGregor lies another 7kms down from the farm.) Alternatively only the McGregor side of the trail can be hiked to the waterfall and rock pool (good swimming). It’s approximately four hours then, there and back. Permits are available through Cape Nature.
