Llyn Aled is a lake on Mynydd Hiraethog in Denbighshire. It is situated north of the A543 and 4½ miles to the north-east of the village of Pentrefoelas. It is a natural lake; however, a dam was built at its northern outlet to increase its size. It has an area of 112.7 acres and is 1,227 ft above sea level. One can reach the lake via the A543. There are a number of varieties of fish in the lake, including pike. The lake was used by the Llyn Aled Sailing Club, but the club closed down due to a dwindling membership and the proximity of the much larger Llyn Brenig.

The Clwydian Way runs along the north side of the lake.

Llyn Aled feeds the Llyn Aled Isaf reservoir.[1] The lake is also the source of the River Aled, which flows northward.
