Witnesses Alexander Chalmers senior (Senr) and Alexander Chalmers junior (junr) in ? of Eden.

The place given for William Wright looks like h?dy hill.
Can you find a place nearby with a name like that?
Where did the baptism take place?

Possibly both these are names of farms.

This a great site to find Scottish places

You may have to do some searching backwards and forwards from the place you know the baptism took place.
