Gael Holiday Homes is a privately run business located in Dingwall in Ross-shire in the Highlands. We offer guests a variety of self-catering accommodation throughout the Scottish Highlands and are proud to promote Highland accommodation from within the Highlands.
We understand that the most important part of your holiday rental business or investment property is having your occupancy and income as high as possible, particularly if your property is an investment and you wish it to return as high a yield as possible.
To achieve maximum return we give all our owners the option to list their property on multiple channels such as Booking.com, AirBnB, HomeAway, Expedia and Visit Scotland to name a few, giving owners the maximum marketing exposure around.
We link up all of the calendars and channels meaning prices can be changed quickly and you don’t get any double bookings.
Our fees are based on the number of channels switched on and start from as little as 10% (including VAT)
You have nothing to lose as there are no upfront costs* and we work on a basis of ‘no booking then no fee’.

✘* Housekeeping module access available as an extra of £35 per year (plus VAT)
✘** Housekeeping costs are based on property size and agreed between you and the housekeeping supplier. All other staff and sub-contract costs are agreed between you and the supplier. We pay your invoices from your client account held by us. 3% fee (plus VAT) of invoice value applies.
^ If Visit Scotland are asked to take VIC and telephone bookings they charge 10% of the rental and take this payment directly from the guest. This option can be disabled so only online bookings are taken.
Setting up your self-catering holiday property on our website is easy. We’ll be happy to discuss this with you or set up a visit to your holiday property at any time.
So if you are looking for bookings just to cover the running costs of a second home you use for holidays or you have one or more investment properties that are run purely commercially we are more than happy to work hard to deliver results.
* free listing subject to the property being available for us to market for holiday rental for 12 months per year. A restricted listing fee of £200 (plus VAT) per year applies when owner bookings exceed 50% of any rolling 3 month period – please enquire for full details.
