The Skelton Inlet (78º54´S 162º15´E) is an ice-filled inlet at the terminus of the Skelton Glacier, along the western edge of the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica. The feature is about 16 km (10 mi) wide at the entry points between Cape Timberlake and Fishtail Point. Discovered by the British National Antarctic Expedition (BrNAE), 1901-04, which named this feature for Lt. Reginald W. Skelton (Royal Navy), chief engineer of the expedition's ship RRS Discovery.
