The original B9019 was a coastal road in Banffshire.

The road started at an end-on junction with the A942 at Ianstown, east of Buckie. The exact spot is difficult to pick out - but it seems to be at the point where the straight road crosses a stream and bends to the left at the eastern end of the harbour area. The road then followed the coast via Findochty to Portknockie, where it took a roundabout route through town, apparently following Harbour Road, Patrol Road and New Street. From there it ran inland to meet the A98.

Within ten years of its initial classification in 1922–3, the route had been upgraded to Class I status, becoming an extension of the A942, and the number has since been recycled. In the intervening years the original route through Findochty has been destroyed and the A942 rerouted onto a parallel route, partially using a former railway alignment to straighten the road. In Portknockie the original roundabout route has been shortened, and the western part of the old road has become an extension of the B9021.
