In a 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add walnuts and cook, stirring constantly until lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer walnuts to a bowl.
Add port to the warm skillet. Increase heat to high and boil until thickened, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and gently toss figs and walnuts in port syrup.
Place each piece of cheese on a separate plate. Top with fig and nut mixture and drizzle with any extra syrup. Serve immediately.
