Hold on a minute, In the video I sent, I hopped a fence over to the pathway which led to the stairways behind the toilets. The 1960 Guidebook shows a place saying toilets next to the Swiss Cottage and above it a straight-ish pathway seeming similar to the pathway I was on. Is this a way there?

Also just noticed that Cuckoo Arbour is on Google Maps, that should help.

So I did some mapping, and I saw that the path on the map is now blocked off - It's the one behind Rita's first turn - old UG Swinger site. I'll try and map out an accessible route.

Also sorry for the bad drawing there - my image editor keeps moving stuff.

I actually made a video on cuckoo arbour not too long ago... not sure if it would be of any help though and I’d hate it to seem like I’m self promoting... anyhow, it’s on my yt channel by the same name of this account if it could be of any use to you.

Yeah I saw it, seeing that video was the first time I had seen Cuckoo Arbour at all. Great video.
