To turn this into a 15-day route, combine days 3 and 4, or 4 and 5, to make a long, but mostly very flat, day with a couple of big hills. Alternatively days 5 and 6 could be combined. You could also combine days 13 and 14 - again for a long, but predominately flat and easy, day.

Day 10 (Penrith to Lanark) is long, although there are no difficult climbs. You could shorten it by starting at Carlisle, or opt - somehow - for a more direct route to Arran with a break halfway. Accommodation options in this area are limited, though.
