Colin McWilliam (1928—1989) was a Scottish architecture academic and author.

Born in London, he graduated from the University of Cambridge and became Director of the Scottish National Buildings Record, then the Assistant Secretary of the National Trust for Scotland. He also directed architectural history and conservation at Heriot-Watt University. He was also a founder of the Dictionary of Scottish Architects Project.

In the 1970s he was approached by Sir Nikolaus Pevsner who having completed the The Buildings of England series, was keen to extend the project to cover the rest of the UK. McWilliam went on to co-write two volumes in The Buildings of Scotland series and became the project's editor.

He also designed a desk and a bookcase incorporating copies of a portrait medallion of Robert Adam by James Tassie, for the Cabinet Room in Bute House, the official residence of the First Minister of Scotland.

Colin McWilliam is commemorated on a plaque in Greyfriars Kirkyard in Edinburgh.

He was the father of the author Candia McWilliam.
