Loughrigg Tarn is a small, natural lake in the Lake District, Cumbria. Situated north of Lake Windermere, just north of the village of Skelwith Bridge, and at the foot of Loughrigg Fell. "Loughrigg Tarn" is a bit of a tautology, since "loughrigg" means "ridge of the lough (lake)" and "tarn" is also the name of a body of water.

Loughrigg Tarn was a favoured place of William Wordsworth, who, in his Epistle to Sir George Howland Beaumont Bart, likened it to “Diana’s Looking-glass...round clear and bright as heaven", a reference to Lake Nemi, the mirror of Diana in Rome.
