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.

Bank Holiday Trostan
by OonaghG  5 May 2010
Walked up Trostan on Bank Holiday Monday from the B14 Cushendall Road stile. It was a lovely walk, not really challenging but VERY boggy! I did half the walk with a soggy foot having fallen foul of one puddle! Thank goodness it wasn't too cold.
We had a hazy view of Ailsa Craig from the top which was a nice surprise. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/361/comment/4679/
