The Sige of Fort Augustus was a conflict that took place over two days in 1746 during the Jacobite rising of 1745. A rebel Jacobite force succeeded in taking the fort from British-Hanoverian forces in March 1746, after an artillery shell blew up the gunpowder magazine of the fort. The Jacobites then used cannons that they had captured at Fort Augustus to lay siege to Fort William.
