The Oban Times was founded by 18 year old James Miller in July 1861, who ran the family stationer and printer business after his father died.
Miller originally established the Oban Pictorial Monthly Magazine, which in 1866 became a four-page weekly broadsheet, the Oban Times.

1867–79 Oban Times, and Argyllshire Advertiser

Earliest issue: January 11, 1868
Latest issue: December 25, 1875
