I really just want to know what/where "Mount Ider" is/means in the following verse of this song:

"And on her who The prize on Mount Ider was won
Then approached me A lassy As bright As The sun
And The ribbon And The tartan around her did flow...."

Thanks
Julie

The prize on Mount Ida was a bull - see Cassandra

(In the context of the song it probably refers to Helen, won by Paris).

I think the proper title is "The Pride Of Glencoe. "
It should be in DT.
