|Route outline (key)|
The B819 is a short B-road to the south of Kirkintilloch. It starts at a roundabout on the A803 by the Strathkevin Retail Park in Cadder and heads northeast through the retail park and past the cemetery to another roundabout, where a link road heads north to the Torrance Roundabout on the A803. The road then runs past HMP Low Moss before zigzagging through a former industrial area, slowly being repurposed, and on across fields to reach Boghead. After the left turn of Boghead Road which leads into Lenzie, the road skirts the southern edge of the urban area before crossing a narrow bridge over the Glasgow to Stirling railway line to reach a T-junction on the B812. The B819 TOTSOs left here and continues eastwards to the north of Gadloch before entering Lenzie at the southern end of the urban area.
Soon after, it reaches the B757 at a mini-roundabout in Millersneuk and then there is a short multiplex north along that road to the next mini-roundabout, where the B819 regains its number by turning right, to continue east. The route now follows Lindsaybeag Road through the town to reach the A806 at Lindsaybeg Roundabout, and then quickly re-enters open country. Now turning to the south east, the road continues across the fields and climbs to cross a bridge over the M80. A sharp left hand bend then brings the road into Chryston, where it heads south along Lindsaybeg Road to end at a T-junction on the A752 (pre-bypass A80) at Muirhead.
Originally the B819 only ran between the A803 in Cadder and the B757 in Millersneuk. The road from there to Muirhead was originally the B757. When that road was rerouted south to meet the M80 in 1992 the B819 took over its original section from Millersneuk to Muirhead.
There has also been a realignment at the site of Lindsaybeg Roundabout, although this change substantially pre-dates the construction of the A806. The old road line formed a double bend to the south west of the roundabout site, following Lindsaybeg Lane and Blacklands Place (the bridge over the A806 was added in 2010).
