Along the east coast of Ireland there is a cluster of names anglicised as Collin/Collon from Irish collann, meaning 'a height'. See also Collin Top (Co. Antrim) and Collon Hill (Co. Wicklow). They may ultimately show the same root as Lat. collis, Fr. colline and Eng. hill.   Big Collin is the 1048th highest place in Ireland.

Access to Big Collin is very straight forward, as a track has been created to serve the new wind farm on its n/e side. There is ample space to park up and not block the entrance (at 239971 A), there is however a picnic area a further 500 metres north east along the B94, which would be preferable when the wind farm access track is in use. It really is a short walk of no more than a k to the summit, which resembles a burial cairn, complete with a depression in its top, as if a chamber has collapsed. Nice views too!
