Crim Rocks is a small group of uninhabited islands in the Isles of Scilly, Cornwall.

The rocks lie on the western fringe of the Isles of Scilly, about a mile and a half north of Bishop Rock,[1] and about a quarter of a mile southwest of Zantman's Rock.

The name "Crim" may be cognate with the Middle Welsh "crimp" meaning "shin, ridge, or ledge." The most conspicuous of the Crim Rocks is the Peaked Rock.[1]
