Collace[pronunciation?] is a parish in Perthshire, Scotland, lying 8 miles north-east of Perth, in the Carse of Gowrie district. The parish boundary includes the neighbouring villages of Kinrossie and Saucher.
The traditional industries of the area are farming, quarrying (sandstone) and weaving, but the latter is now gone.

Collace parish church was built as a Free Church in 1854 but changed to the Church of Scotland in 1929. It was originally known as the Burrelton Free Church and later as Buerrelton and Cargill. Its stained glass is by William Meigle & Son.
