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 418th highest in Ireland. Trostan is the highest point in county Antrim.

Trostan, the highest point in County Antrim, is mostly covered in thick peat. However like other neighbouring peaks, over about 520m the peat gives way to something else, usually the rough stony surface shown in the picture. The view centrally in the distance includes Skerry Hill. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/361/comment/919/
