This is a short segment from a film entitled "On Looking For Faces in the Clouds". It is a quasi-scientific investigation into Pareidolia - the tendency of the human mind to perceive recognisable patterns and shapes, particularly the human face, in otherwise random and chaotic shapes.

In this clip, Jamie Gaukroger, a member of the Am Baile team, is seen leading the film crew along the shore of Loch nan Uamh at Druimindarroch to a large rock which he thinks resembles a human head.

Filming took place towards the end of 2007 and the film was premiered at the Rotterdam International Film Festival in January 2009.
