Pulteney Point

Pulteney Point, a barren sand spit at the southwest corner of Malcolm Island, marks the separation of Broughton and Queen Charlotte Straits.

The island and point were named after Admiral Sir Pulteney Malcolm, a Scottish born British Naval Officer, in 1846 by Commander George T. Gorden of HMS Cormorant.
