Narrative

The southernmost large island of the Taylor Islands in the Bunger Hills. There are cliffs along the northern coast and the highest point on the island is on the northern coast. From there a saddle runs across to another rounded peak roughly in the middle and there is a gully running northwards on the western side of the island towards the saddle. The island was charted by the Soviet Antarctic Expedition in 1956.
