James Stirling (1800–1876) was a Scottish engineer, who was the brother of Robert Stirling. He studied for the Kirk (church) but was later apprenticed to Claude Girdwood as a mechanical engineer. He then became manager of the Dundee Foundry which built several locomotives for the Dundee and Newtyle Railway.

In 1846 he left Dundee and set up an engineering practice in Edinburgh. He died in Edinburgh in 1876 [1].
