It’s an interesting idea Mike. I don’t know much about bleaching greens, but I gather they were normally close to settlements – villages, big houses, farms etc. – in sunny, well-sheltered sites. The location of that lonely pair of fields on Moor Hill and Moss Nae (on the summit of the high ridge between the Tarff and Fleet catchments, always the windiest stretch on the A75 between Gatehouse and CD and the first to catch snow), is about as unlikely a spot for one as could be found in our area!  😊
