James Stewart (Scottish Gaelic: Seumas Stiùbhart) (died 1466) was a prelate from 15th century Scotland. Stewart was a member of the Stewart kindred of Lorne. He was Dean of Moray from 1435 until 19 May 1460, when he was provided to the bishopric. He was consecrated as Bishop of Moray sometime towards the end of the year. He resigned the see two years later in the papal curia in favour of his brother, David Stewart. He died on 5 August 1466.
