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 698th highest place in Ireland.

The easy and the awful
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy, jackill  11 Feb 2022
Park at R82389 59162 starA, a forest entrance with room for 5 cars.Follow the forest track taking the first left onto the Slieve Felim way, follow the way, ignoring the many offshoots, to R81091 58087 starB. Turn left here and then right at R81207 58049 starC up a narrow track. When this ends cross rough ground to point 423 mtrs.From point 423 mtrs head downhill east, following a fence and a muddy track to R81263 57802 starD. Follow the muddy track between two forests, do not panic it is passable despite first appearances, keep to the right hand side. As you exit the far end cross a wire fence. Rough ground and high heather separate you from the summit. The summit is marked by a hole, a broken tv mast and some stones with names.
An approach from the east is possibly the easiest. There is an entrance at R83875 57275 starE that looks like someone's gate, (pillars & curving walls) but is actually a forest track. This is just about drivable with care, taking you to R824 567 starF, where there is room for 2 cars. A steepish, stoney track leads up the edge of the forest to open hillside. Another narrow track of sorts extends to the NW through the heather, almost all the way to the high point. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/585/comment/5344/
