Narrative

Nunatak which lies 1.5 mi W of Arctowski Nunatak in the Seal Nunataks group, off the E coast of Antarctic Peninsula. First charted by the SwedAE under Nordenskjold during a sledge journey in 1902, and named by him probably for Capt. David Gray, whaling skipper of Peterhead, Scotland. Gray had planned an expedition to the Weddell Sea in 1891 but the plan was abandoned due to a lack of funds.
