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 419th highest in Ireland. Trostan is the highest point in county Antrim.

NICKY on Trostan, 2007
by NICKY  5 Mar 2007
An excellent mountain that never has the same atmosphere two days in a row. On the day we climbed it, we had already done most of the Moyle Way and we were knackered! Once up there my energy levels lifted to finish the walk. A full fifteen minutes is all it takes! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/361/comment/2630/
