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 695th highest place in Ireland.

There is an easier route up Cullaun. From Rear Cross take the Cappamore Road. After about a mile there is an entrance on the right with two stone pillars. This looks like the entrance to a farm, but is actually a forest road. Drive in this entrance and up the hill. It 's a bit rough but fine in an ordinary car. Park when you reach the forest, there is room for half a dozen cars. Follow the outskirts of the forest on the right and you will reach the summit within about 15 minutes.
