Balgowan lies at the centre of routes 3 and 4 of the Midlands Meander, a trendy arts and crafts route that includes wine and cheese farms, and fabulous restaurants. The Balgowan area offers a range of excellent accommodation, wine farms and craftwork from weavers, potters and brewers.
It was in Balgowan that the first brown trout eggs were delivered from Scotland, hatched and released into the Mooi River where today trout fishing has become one of the most popular activities with visitors to the region.
Balgowan is a place to linger and appreciate the evergreen countryside with only the bleating of goats and the rustling of trees to interrupt the silence.
