Can a self employed (Coach, I work via the internet, from any location) US citizen get a long-term visa for the UK? -Scotland specifically. For at least 1 year?
And if so, what is the procedure? I can't seem to find this information anywhere.

The reason you can't find any information is that there's no such visa. Long-term visas are, generally speaking, for family (spouse/fiance visas, etc), students, or work visas (inc. charity work).
Most classes of long-term visa require a sponsor (university, charity, employer, etc). You can't get a work visa as a self-employed person, unless you have a significant amount of money and are planning to start up a business in the UK. If you have millions of pounds to invest, that's another route.
