The element bolbain also occurs in the names of two townlands in Inishowen, Bulbinmore (Bolbain Mhór) and Bulbinbeg (Bolbain Bheag), but the meaning of this element is unclear. An alternative Irish form, Cnoc Bulaba, is given by Charles McGlinchey in An Fear Deireanach den tSloinneadh / The Last of the Name.   Bulbin is the 587th highest place in Ireland.

A fine spring Bulb in Donegal
by eamonoc  7 Mar 2022
was in Donegal for a few days, headed up north from Buncrana on the R238 turned left at C 37912 41181 starK, was able to drive on a well made minor road to C36368 40298 starL room to park one or maybe two at a squeeze, on a clear day Bulbin is in view to the North approx 2.5km away the cross visible from here, walked along a well made track for about 300mts and then up past some old bog cuttings onto open hillside and a fairly wet ascent up gentle slopes to the large concrete cross that sits atop Bulbin. Fine views in all directions from here Slieve Snaght dominates view Eastwards, got caught in a fairly severe snows shower that lasted for most of my descent to the start point, then the skies cleared to give stunning views all around Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/475/comment/23433/
