Island 6 mi long lying at the SW side of Hughes Bay, off the W coast of Graham Land. The feature has been known to sealers operating in the area since the 1820s, although it was shown on charts as part of the mainland. In 1922 the whale catcher Graham passed through the channel separating it from the mainland, proving its insularity. Named in association with Cape Murray, the seaward extremity of the island.
