This name was originally applied about 1880 by U.S. Bureau of Fisheries (USBF) to what is now called "Pinnacle Rock," because of the latters resemblance to a "Scotch cap." However, because the precipitous cliff behind the rock was a better landmark from the sea, the name was transferred to it. See also Pinnacle Rock.
