Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 4.
Mix the self-raising flour, oatmeal, wholemeal flour, caster sugar, baking powder and the salt in a bowl to combine.
Add the butter and rub into the flour mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs.
Fold in the walnuts.
Place the buttermilk and maple syrup into a separate bowl and mix well.
Add the buttermilk and maple syrup mixture to the dry mixture and mix well to make a dough.
Roll the dough out on a floured work surface to 3cm/1½in thick. Using a pastry cutter, cut out 12 scones (or as many as the dough will provide).
Place onto a greased baking tray and transfer to the oven to bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden-brown.
Eat while still warm from the oven.
