Robert McGregor was a member of the Royal Scottish Academy. He exhibited at the Royal Academy in London from 1876, and at the Paris Salon, winning a bronze medal at the Paris Exposition Universelle of 1900. His paintings of agricultural labourers recall the works of Bastien Lepage and Jean-François Millet.
