Joyce's suggestion (INP, iii, 586) that this peak is so named because of its resemblance to a pilgrim's staff with a crooked top seems without foundation.   Trostan is the highest mountain in the Antrim Hills area and the 420th highest in Ireland. Trostan is the highest point in county Antrim.

I noticed yesterday that the Moyle Way sign now sends you up a forestry track just a few metres to the left after the waterfall - I think it joins the old route about halfway through the forest. We avoided it altogether by turning left at the falls along the bank at the edge of the felled area and then following the route of the old mineral railway anti clockwise round the hill as far as the first fence up hill and climbing beside it to the top. Great views all round and feet still dry! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/361/comment/18404/
