Oban to Glasgow Airport to Dublin via train and plane

We'll be in Oban, Scotland, on a Friday in June and need to travel from Oban to Dublin on Saturday.
(1) Currently three trains a day from Oban to Glasgow. Will that number expand in the summer?
(2) We can arrive in Glasgow around 12noon from Oban via train, then have to get to the Glasgow airport for our Dublin flight by 2pm. Will that 2 hour window be enough for us to get from Glasgow station to airport flight?

Note that there are two train stations in Glasgow: Central and Queen Street. There are no trains that go to the airport. You will need to take the train from Oban, walk a block or two to the bus station/stop, then take the bus (Airport Express 500) to the airport. The busses depart every 30 minutes, and take up to 30 minutes depending where you board, so you should have enough time. I assume your flight is 4pm or later and you’ve factored in checkin time to the 2pm arrival at the airport. If your flight is at 2, that’s not going to work.
