Colliston dates from 1583 and consisted of an oblong main block with round towers at the angles brought to the square by means of corbelling.
The castle has been much altered and added to in later years. One of the square upper turrets has been removed; the windows have been enlarged; the walls heightened and a new roof put on.
The castle has been in use as a wedding venue and is in excellent condition.
