Bowshot sits aside the Trade Way north of the Way Inn and south of Liam's Hold. It was name for its location, being a "bowshot" from the Misty Forest when the village was founded . The woods are now considerably farther away as the years of logging have taken their toll.
Recently caverns have been discovered at the western edge of the hamlet. The caves maybe connected to the upper Underdark and a large vein of silver.
