The B806 is a short B-road in north Lanarkshire.

It starts at a mini-roundabout on the A752 in Gartcosh and heads west along Gartloch Road. The road's original route was slightly further north along what is now Old Gartloch Road. This crossed a now-removed bridge over the railway line and then headed through the houses along a line that can no longer be followed.

After old and new routes rejoin the B806 continues west across the fields. It soon reaches Gartloch, a former mental hospital whose grounds have now become a housing estate. The road continues west and eventually reaches Garthamlock, a modern estate, much of which has now been demolished. As the road nears its end it becomes more built-up and it soon ends at traffic lights on the B765 just north of M8 J11.

Originally the B806 continued west along what is now the B765 to end on the A80 in Provanmill. It remained with this western end until at least the 1990s but has since been cut back.
