Llyn Mair (Welsh: 'Mary's lake') is a 14 acre artificial lake located at SH652412 in the area of Tan-y-Bwlch, in the catchment area of the River Dwyryd. It lies a little above Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, and was created by W.E.Oakeley (of Plas Tan-y-bwlch) as a 21st birthday present to his daughter Mair, and as a water supply.

The lake is set alongside the B4410 road, a minor road linking the village of Rhyd. The position of the lake bordered with ancient oak woods and its tranquil appearance makes this a popular picnic site for visitors and it also provides a starting point for a number of local country walks. There is some limited parking available just off the road.

The narrow gauge Ffestiniog Railway runs through the woods above the lake, and Tan-y-Bwlch railway station can be reached on foot from the lake.
