Milne Land or Milneland is a large island in eastern Greenland. It is the third largest island of Greenland, after the main island of Greenland and Disko Island. It is named after British admiral David Milne.
The island is 113 km long from Moraene Point in the southwest to Bregne Point in the northeast, and up to 45 km wide, and 3,913 km² in area. It is part of an archipelago, which includes Storo and Sorte Island in the Northwest, Denmark Island in the south, and the Bjorne Islands in the northeast. Cape Leslie is Milneland's southeastern headland.
Milne Land is separated from the Renland peninsula in the north by the 6 to 10 km wide Ofjord, from the Gaaseland peninsula in the south by the 4 to 6 km wide Fonfjord, and from the mainland coast in the west by the 4 to 14 km wide Rode Fjord.
