Yes, good spot [?guess !!] Philip.

Cheeky!  ;D

google doesn't throw up anything for Lauderdale Haugh or Lauderdalehaugh, but I am fairly sure that's what the document reads.

Philip

Ecclesmachan 19 April 1708
David Meikle lawfull son to David Meikle Indweller in
Lauderlader haugh (heigh)? and Elizabeth Haugh was born in the first
first day of July 1777 and baptised  ....? July before these
witnesses  John? Meikle and Andrew Cumminghan.

Thanks - such a great response.... 
Looking for hints from David's background but nothing suggests he or his family moved around much.  Married Agness DICK in Linlithgow, West Lothian. David's father - is written; born in Abercorn, LInlithgow, also children born either in Abercorn or Linlithgow.
Maybe 'Lauderdale Haugh or Lauderdalehaugh' is the part of the property/estate/house of the Earl of Lauderdale?  I have just goggled via 'ScotlandsPlaces - Parish of Lauder - Lauderhaugh!

The initial date is 178[ ]. Could be 1780 or 1788.

Most likely - 1788.  David is born Jul 1, 1777 but first written in the church book in 1788! 

Enclosed top page entry. I have wondered abt that date! 

Death Roll 1851
David Meikle died at South Queensferry on the 2nd of Dec and was buried here on the 5th of the same, aged 75 yrs.
