The term claymore (pronounced /ˈkleɪmɔər/, from Scottish Gaelic claidheamh mòr, "very big sword") may refer to one of two distinct types of Scottish swords: it may refer to a two-handed sword with a cross hilt, of which the guards were usually turned down, used by the Highlanders of Scotland; or to a basket-hilted broadsword adopted in the 16th century, which is still worn as the full dress sword in the Highland regiments of the British Army.
The two-handed claymore was a large sword used in the late Medieval and early modern periods. It was used in the constant clan warfare and border fights with the English from circa 1500 to 1700. The last known battle in which it is considered to have been used in a significant number was the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689. It was somewhat smaller than other two-handed swords of the era. The two-handed claymore seems to be an offshoot of Early Scottish medieval swords which had developed a distinctive style of a cross-hilt with down sloping arms that ended in spatulate swellings. The spatulate swellings were frequently made in a quatrefoil design.
