The B5105 is a rural B-road in North Wales.
The road starts on the A5 Cerrigydrudion Bypass (although the A5 has always formed a bypass here) and heads east into the village. It bends left then right in the village centre and is the dominant partner in a short multiplex with the B4501.
After leaving Cerrigydrudion the B5105 continues east to cross the Nant y Felin before going over the hills into the next valley, crossing the River Alwen in Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr. It then turns sharply right and climbs once more.
The road then goes along an unfenced road through the Clocaenog Forest to the next village of Clawdd Newydd. It continues northeast, in the open once more, across undulating countryside, before descending into the valley of the River Clwyd.
After going through Llanfwrog the road ends at a mini-roundabout on the A494 on the near side of Ruthin. It used to continue a short distance further to end on the A525 Clwyd Street and was quickly extended clockwise round the town centre, past the long-gone station, to end on the A494 Well Street. As this section formed a natural bypass it has now become the mainline of the A494.
