Mix together the flour and salt and rub in the butter.
On a floured surface knead the dough lightly. Pat the dough to around a 2cm thickness and then use a cookie cutter.
Place the scones onto a greased baking sheet or onto parchment paper. Brush milk onto the scones so that they will brown in the oven. Cook in a pre-heated oven at 220ºC / 430ºF / gas mark 7 for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and well risen.
