    Duncan Bay is a great place to visit, the narrow road can be tricky if towing a large boat or caravan and you meet traffic coming the opposite way. The Bach has all the comforts of home and is well set out for a relaxing time. The hot water pressure is a a bit low in the shower.

    We're glad to hear you had a relaxing time away at Duncan Bay and enjoyed the bach! I've passed on your feedback to our team about the water pressure. Hope to see you back again at any of our Bachcare holiday homes throughout the country for your next stay! - Phoebe
