That portion of the coast of Victoria Land between Cape Washington and Minna Bluff. Named by NZ-APC in 1961 after Capt. Robert Falcon Scott, RN, leader of the BrNAE (1901-04) and the BrAE (1910-13), who lost his life on the return journey from the South Pole. Much of the early exploration of this coastline was accomplished by Scott and his colleagues, and many of the names in the region were bestowed by him.
