Cockshott Point is a small promontory the southern edge of Bowness Bay. It has long been popular with tourists, and also market traders, who used to line the path along the lake shore. The market traders are long gone, and Cockshott Point is now owned by the National Trust. A stroll along the Lake Shore from Bowness Bay is nice at any time, but in the evening, after a long day's walking or touring, it is the perfect place for a stroll and to watch the sun go down.

A good wide path means that this walk is suitable for all.

There are extensive views across the bay towards Belle isle and Claife Heights.

As well as down the Lake towards the ferry and Lakeside.

It's a great walk for a late evening, somewhere to watch the sun go down for the perfect end to a relaxing day.

Return is by a slightly different route, making this a great little circular walk.
