James Miller FRSE RSA (1860–1947) was a Scottish architect and artist. He is noted for his many buildings in Glasgow and for his Scottish railway stations. Among these are the heavily American-influenced Union Bank building at 110-20 St Vincent Street; his 1901-1905 extensions to Glasgow Central railway station; and the spectacular Wemyss Bay railway station on the Firth of Clyde. He also produced a number of Arts and Crafts designs.

Miller moved to Stirling in 1911, at Randolphfield, and died there on 28 November 1947.

James Miller was born in Auchtergaven, Perthshire, in 1860. Soon after his birth, his father moved to Little Cairnie, Forteviot, where he spent most of his childhood. He was educated at Perth Academy.
