Narrative

That portion of the coast of Victoria Land lying between Cape Washinton in the north to Minna Bluff in the south. Named for Captain Robert Falcon Scott, RN, the leader of the NAE, 1901-04, and the BAE, 1910-13, who lost his life on the return journey from the South Pole. Much of the exploration of this area of coastline was accomplished by Scott and his colleagues, and many of the names in the region were bestowed by him.
