Inaccessible Island from the southeast.
Location in Antarctica
|Highest elevation||95 m (312 ft)|
|Administered under the Antarctic Treaty System|
Inaccessible Island is a small rocky island, the northernmost of the Dellbridge Islands, lying 2 kilometres (1 nmi) southwest of Cape Evans, Ross Island, Antarctica. It is the most imposing of the group as it is nearly always bare of snow and rises to 95 meters (310 ft). The island was discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (1901–04) under Robert Falcon Scott and so named because of the difficulty in reaching it.
