Woman becomes Glasgow's '87th best tourist attraction'

A woman from Glasgow has been named the city's '87th best tourist attraction' on traveller review website TripAdvisor.

Mary Johnston was inadvertently listed as "ready for reviews", Metro reports.

Speaking to The Scotsman, Mary said: "I didn't set it up. It must be a bug in the system or it is malicious.

"I'm already a user and I went on recently to review somewhere in Amsterdam so it may have happened then."

The middle-aged mum has already received positive feedback, with one user writing: "If you visit just one Mary on your next trip to Glasgow, make sure it's Mary Doll!"

Recommended attractions near Mary that you can visit on a trip to Glasgow include Bellahouston Park and Pollok Country Park.
