Tamme Outcrop Landscape Protection Area is located on the eastern shore of Lake Võrtsjärv between the villages of Tamme and Neemisküla in Rannu municipality. The area is rich in Devon sandstone outcrops from the Aruküla layer. Tamme Outcrop is known as an area where placoderms have been found and where valuable paleontological material has been collected since the second half of the 19th century.

Ten information boards have been set up along the hiking track, which is almost 2 km long. They provide interesting information about the local natural environment.
