This rocky island was known as Teach Doinn (Old Ir. Tech Duinn) in early Irish tradition. Donn was the god of the dead, and his house was synonymous with the Otherworld. Local sailors believed that the cries of dead souls waiting to travel to the Otherworld could be heard when they passed by the Bull Rock.
