Narrative

El nombre recuerda a la ciudad escocesa, del mismo nombre que probablemente haya sido aplicado por el personal de la expedición británica del "Discovery" en el año 1935. Morro situado al NW de la isla Media Luna, presenta una altura de 110 metros, sus paredes caen a pique hacia el mar, el morro está unido a tierra por una lengua baja de escorias volcánicas. En verano está libre de hielo lo que lo hace muy conspicuo.
