a question over relative pronoun


Senior Member
Is "on the skirt of which there was a village" in the sentence below correct?
I want to say "a village was located on the lower part of the hill".

The library was on the top of a hill on the skirt of which there was a village.

Thank you in advance

    You could say that the library was at the top of a hill, above a village. (In this context, "above" would not mean up in the air over the village, but higher up the hill.) Or: Above the village, at the top of the hill, there was a library.
