Keswick Landings to Ashness Gate

An easy lakeside walk taking you past Friars Crag and Calfclose Bay to Ashness Gate.

Time: 1- 2 hours
Grading: Easy
Start: Keswick Boat Landings
End: Ashness Gate

From the Keswick boat landings follow the waters edge with the lake on your right side. Follow the woodland trail to Friars Crag then bear left and through a gate to an area of grassland, Strandshag Bay. Continue along the path.

After the grassland is another gate which heads again through a woodland trail. Cross the small footbridge and go to the end of this path where you meet a gate heading onto a rough road. Go right along this road and follow the lakeside path past a wooded headland and the National Trust Centenary Stone (a large stone cut in half on the lakeshore) at Calfclose Bay.

Continue on the lakeshore path until you finally reach Ashness Gate and take the launch back to Keswick.
