The B819 is a short B-road in north Lanarkshire.
It starts at a roundabout on the A803 by the Strathkevin Retail Park in Cadder. The road heads northeast through the retail park and past the cemetery before zigzagging across industrial dereliction - and fields - to reach Boghead. 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 the Gadloch before actually entering the urban area it was skirting at Boghead. 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. It crosses the A806 at a roundabout to reenter open country.
Now running more southerly, the road continues across the fields and climbs to cross a bridge over the M80. The road soon becomes residential once more as it enters Muirhead. It heads south along Lindsaybeg Road to end at a T-junction on the A752 (pre-bypass A80).
Originally the B819 only ran between the A803 in Calder 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 the B819 took over its original section from Millersneuk to Muirhead.
