Back to Claymore (The)
CLAYMORE, THE. Scottish, Strathspey. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). One part. Composed by A. Cameron. Hunter (1988) says the strathspey was named after the steamer Claymore  which sailed to the Hebrides from Oban in the latter 1950's and 1960's. Actually, it was the third vessel of that name to sail Oban Bay; the first was built in 1881 by the Thomson brothers and was a favorite of the great doyan of Scottish West Coast shipping, Graham Easton Langmuir.
