a few issues around the 2km mark?

Yes,you can tell where the control circles were! At least at 1, 3, 5, 6 and 11.

Issue not resolved. Both Cath and I spent 7 minutes pretty much inside the circle at no. 3, but even tweaking the entry and exit points exact, I can't get Cath's and my position for the flag to agree.

Part of the problem was that in "Quickroute" you can adjust the GPS track to fit the map.
We just tried Jagge's "Routegadget3" which uploads gpx files and a map to Google Earth. In that one you adjust only the map to get it into the correct position.
Ignoring the map firstly, the two gpx files agree within less than 5m as to where the flag was. Then adjusting the map as well as possible indicates the flag was positioned about 40m down the hill from where the centre of the control circle was.
On the flickr image that would be between the two positions we had on Quickroute, but slightly closer to mine: where the two boulder field triangles almost touch.
The other major problem was that the map doesn't relate well to the ground in this area; that flag position makes no sense when comparing map to terrain.
