Scuttle Valley (76°38′S 161°9′E) is a small deglaciated valley with meltwater lakes that lies parallel to and just south of Towle Glacier in the Convoy Range, Victoria Land, Antarctica. The valley comprises the lower elevations at the northeast end of Elkhorn Ridge and is separated from Towle Glacier by a dolerite ridge upon which the flank of Towle Glacier rests 80 m (260 ft) above the valley floor. The feature was visited by Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition (VUWAE), 1976–77, led by Christopher J. Burgess. The name derives from the discovery of a parachute and abandoned airdrop packaging in the vicinity.
