Along the east coast of Ireland there is a cluster of names anglicised as Collin/Collon from Irish collann, meaning 'a height'. See also Collin Top (Co. Antrim) and Collon Hill (Co. Wicklow). They may ultimately show the same root as Lat. collis, Fr. colline and Eng. hill.   Big Collin is the 1046th highest summit in Ireland.

Climbed Big Collin for the third time this afternoon. The hill is now much more accessible thanks to the recent enlargement of the wind farm. I parked at the site entrance on the B94 between Ballyclare and Broughshane (239971). From there it's a half-mile walk on the gravel track round to the western side and the wind farm itself. The turbines are really quite enormous when you get up close to them and the blades make a delightful 'swooshing' sound as they turn. Head for the turbine which is highest up the slope. From here it's an easy climb to the summit cairn at 353m. Magnificent views to Slemish and the higher Antrim hills, the Belfast hills and the Sperrins. To complete the walk I descended by the much steeper eastern slope back to the site entrance. A very easy but enjoyable trip - you can be up and down in 40 minutes.
