I am a planning a trip with 8 person on this route and I am a little bit afraid that Stap - Struge part would be a little bit too long in one day for our group. Could you please help if there is any hut/shelter in Veliko Rujno?
as I remember there was no hut in Veliko Rujno. All the cottages hereabout seem to be private. At the church is a cistern with water. If you have tents it’s possible to pitch it around there.
We came from Struge down to Veliko Rujno. On that way there was a sign somewhere here (44.3637400,15.4587300) witch point to Ivančev dom alpin hut (detour 1h20m) (fon +385 98 937 8577)
There is also Paklenica Hut (fon: +385 23 301 636)
Both huts are not on your way to struge :(
From Malo Rujno (44.3724200,15.3872400) is a way to Planinarsko Sklonište Zavrata. Take a look over there:
By the way: The Cistern at Struge was filled with ugly water. You will find a cistern with good water 1km away here (44.3800776,15.4762081,101 Ličko-senjska županija)
All the best for you trip

I just hiked this trail. There should be one sklonište by the church in Veliko Rujno, but was closed. Anyway, hiker in comments wrote that it's a really small one, for two people.
But place around church is really nice, perfect to pitch a tent. So maybe think about carying tents with you or leave tents in that place before going on hiking. Nice gravel road leades to that place.
