People from Kunda used to say, that the stronghold of Toolse was a castle of sea pirates. The master of the castle was a knight named Otto. People called him Ottu of the Toolse.
The pirates used to trick passing ships with false fire near the castle and then they robbed their goods and took people to prison. Later the people were sent to the stronghold Rakvere. There they were sold as slaves.
People say that between the strongholds of Toolse and Rakvere there used to be an underground secret-passage.
