Along the east coast of Ireland there is a cluster of names anglicised as Collin/Collon from Irish collann, meaning 'a height'. See also Big Collin (Co. Antrim) and Collon Hill (Co. Wicklow). They may ultimately show the same root as Lat. collis, Fr. colline and Eng. hill.   Collin Top is the 805th highest place in Ireland.

Collin Top
by slemish  13 Apr 2010
Climbed Collin Top today for the first time - it's a liitle gem, hidden away behind its more well-known and higher neighbour Mid Hill. I parked at a gate on the Dungonnell reservoir service road (198184 A). The knobbly summit of Collin Top can be seen ahead in the distance - it looks a bit like a small version of Slieve Binnian in the Mournes. Climb directly onto the hillside from here heading towards the summit and you soon reach the lonely and windswept lochan known as Loughgarve. There is a great view to the north looking down the vast glacial valley that is Glenariff. From Loughgarve it's a fairly easy climb up the rest of the hill to the 429m summit of Collin Top which is marked by a large cairn. The views from here can be good to excellent depending on the weather. Virtually the whole Antrim plateau is visible on a good day as is the Kintyre coast. The twin domes of Slievenanee and Trostan are particularly prominent to the north-west and Slemish and Agnew's Hill to the south with Lough Neagh in the distance. Mid Hill blocks the view west towards the Sperrins. You can continue on to Mid Hill from here if desired but I returned to the car by the same route. All in all an easy and very peaceful walk - you can be up and down in an hour and a half. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/691/comment/4612/
