Highland Games 2012: North Berwick or Inverkeithing?

Happy New Year everyone.

I know that, a few years back, someone asked basically the same question: If we can choose to attend only one of the highland games, North Berwick's or Inverkeithing's, what are the pros and cons of each and which would you recommend we attend? They are both being held on the same day, 4 August 2012.

I don't mind if replies to my question also consider the appeal of the area nearby the site of the games. For example, museums and learning centres such as the Scottish Seabird Centre in North Berwick and the attractions of the town centres in North Berwick and Inverkeithing.

We are arriving by cruise ship at Queensferry, and I've noted that Inverkeithing Station is only two stations away from Dalmeny, whereas reaching North Berwick will entail a bit more effort. Nonetheless, because this is likely our once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend highland games, we will make the necessary effort if North Berwick is the better choice.

Once again, thanks in advance for your advice. Cheers.
