The name Cullohill, according to Canon William Carrigan, historian, signifies the Hill or (Hill-Back) Wood, and evidently had its origin in a forest that in ancient times clothed Cullohill Mountain and extended thence, along the base, as far as Cullohill Castle and village.

Cullohill has a number of elements which are important both from a historical point of view and are important visually with regard to the physical form of the village – these are the ruins of the old church, the castle, the limekiln and the areas beside them. What was merely a collection of buildings in the countryside is now moulded into a very pleasant local environment.
