The Railway lounge is part of the original Kentallen train station which was the main line station between Ballachulish and Oban before being closed in the late 1960's. The lounge is a great place to relax with a malt whisky in front of the real fire. The Holly Tree is one of the few Hotels in Scotland to have their own fully heated indoor swimming pool and Finnish sauna to completely relax in.
