Williamson was born in Inverness and began his playing career with local Highland League club Inverness Clachnacuddin FC. As a youngster he joined Glasgow Rangers under manager Graeme Souness at that time, only to return to Inverness due to homesickness.
He joined Ross County, and was with the club when they were accepted into the Scottish Football League in 1994. Williamson spent five seasons playing for County in the Third Division, eventually winning the league title and promotion in his final year. A leg break ended his playing career, and he was awarded a testimonial by Ross County which saw Coventry City visit Victoria Park.
Williamson's managerial career began at former club Clach, whom he led to the Highland League title in 2003–04 — their first championship since season 1974–75. In January 2007, Williamson became manager of Third Division side Elgin City, taking over at Borough Briggs following the departure of Brian Irvine.
In the 2007–08 season Williamson changed the fortunes of an Elgin side, who not long before, had been languishing at the bottom of the Third Division. Elgin narrowly missed out on a play-off place on the last day of the season.
