Given its altitude , Collán is more likely to be the element meaning 'height' which appears in names such as Sliabh gCallann (Slieve Gallion in Derry) and Collann (Collon, Co. Louth) than coll(-án), 'hazel' . See also Slievecallan, Co. Clare.   Cullaun is the 696th highest place in Ireland.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned house at R82263 56755 H. Followed Aidand's directions to a very unremarkable summit that is marked by few stones that are barely noticeable as the heather has almost grown over them. A quick bag and can be combined with some of the other unremarkable lesser known hills in the area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/585/comment/20208/
